Appointments and Referrals
The Bariatric Surgery Program offers care through our two locations in New Hampshire - in the southern region of Concord and Manchester and in Lebanon at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). Register to attend an Introduction to Bariatric Surgery session.
Your insurance company may have criteria that must be met for weight loss surgery to be a covered benefit. Some insurance companies have specific dieting requirements, which must be completed before they approve coverage of this procedure. You may need to show the insurance company that you have attempted to lose weight in the past 12 months, and have made changes to your food choices and level of physical activity. Many insurers now have specific weight loss requirements. Please check with your insurer before beginning our program.
You must have a referral from your Primary care provider (PCP) to make an appointment. Please review your health insurance coverage before calling for an appointment.
