Welcome to Central Maine Bariatric Surgery
Central Maine Bariatric Surgery understands how important weight loss is for patients. We have been established since 2007 and have a team ready to support patients through the bariatric surgery process.
Our core team includes surgeons, physician assistants, behavioral health specialists, and registered dietitians. Other medical specialists provide imperative care for our patient’s medical problems as needed. This team helps patients through the bariatric surgery program, helping to make lifestyle changes that are important for long term success.
The bariatric surgery program provides safe, effective metabolic procedures that aide with weight loss which include Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Gastric Band removal and management , and Revisional surgery. We offer minimally invasive surgery options including laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures. We provide comprehensive care for our patients preoperatively and lifelong after surgery. Our nurse coordinator will help patients in making sure they are completing all necessary tests and appointments.
Patients who would like to have an initial evaluation with our surgeons are required to attend a bariatric surgery information seminar or watch an online information seminar video. You will then have your initial evaluation with a surgeon, where you will learn what you will need to do to complete the program.
Our center also offers monthly support groups, in which patients can learn from our dietitians, behavioral health specialists and physical therapists, as well as have a time for social interaction and community building.
