A message from Dr. David A. Gould, Director of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics Concord and Manchester Bariatric Program:
We have lifted the suspension on all elective surgeries, which includes bariatric surgeries. This does remain a fluid situation depending on any increase in COVID-19 cases. Our team has rescheduled all cases that were previously canceled, and we are now scheduling new cases.
For patients who have had surgery and have scheduled follow-up appointments, we are now seeing patients back in the office. Upon arriving to the facility, you will have a temperature scan and will be given a mask. Please call our office.
If you are a new patient interested in bariatric surgery, we plan to continue streaming our monthly WebEx introductory meetings to get you started in the program. After you attend this online meeting, we will help you schedule your in-person consultation with a member of our team.
David A. Gould, MD
