Treatments and Services
Bariatric Surgery programs at Dartmouth-Hitchcock include informational sessions, support groups, nutritional counseling, and exercise promotion in addition to surgical interventions that are specific to each location's program.
The following procedures are provided at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH and Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH.
- Gastric Revision Surgery is done for patients who have had prior bariatric surgery with problems related to that surgery.
- Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, considered by many to be the "gold standard" in weight loss surgery, has been proven successful for long-term weight loss and is one of the safest surgical weight loss methods available.
- Sleeve Gastrectomy, a newer option, changes the shape of the stomach and decreases its overall volume. This procedure is also performed laparoscopically.
