Through our partnership with the Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, our team brings the most advanced treatment options to you. You’ll benefit from:
Convenient access to experts: Bariatric surgery is a life-changing decision that often requires long-term follow-up visits to ensure success. With follow-up visits at Peters Township Health + Wellness Pavilion, your care team is located close to home and tracking your progress is as simple as possible. We also provide vitamins and supplements to support your weight loss goals.
Integrated care team: Obesity treatment affects your entire body. Your care team includes board-certified surgeons, dietitians, psychologists, and others who work together to address every aspect of your health.
Customized approach: Every person is different, so we create individual treatment plans. Some people may be able to lose weight using medications and meal replacements, while others will qualify for surgery. We will help you choose the option that is right for you.
Advanced surgical procedures: At Peters Township Health + Wellness, you can consult with Allegheny Health Network’s board-certified bariatric surgeons, who are trained in the most advanced techniques and perform many procedures laparoscopically. Using tiny incisions and the aid of a camera, minimally invasive procedures may mean a faster, more painless recovery. Learn more about bariatric surgery.
The bariatric and metabolic specialists at Peters Township offer a wide range of pre-and post-surgical treatment options, including consultation and scheduling of procedures like:
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: This procedure involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting this pouch directly to the small intestine. As one of the most common weight-loss surgeries, it often benefits people who’ve tried unsuccessfully to lose weight using other methods.
Sleeve gastrectomy: A surgeon removes most of the stomach to make it smaller, creating a sleeve-shaped stomach that holds less food, so you feel “full” faster. This procedure reduces the body’s “hunger hormones” to help you feel satisfied more quickly.
Revisional bariatric surgery: For people who have tried bariatric surgery before, our surgeons can repair or adjust those procedures to yield better results.
Endoluminal surgery: Our surgeons can perform some procedures without incisions using high-definition cameras inserted in the gastrointestinal tract. These techniques provide a faster, less painful recovery than traditional approaches.
