Obesity is a chronic disease, not a personal failure – and that’s how we treat it.
At Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, our team of weight loss specialists has a wide selection of tools at their disposal. Our weight loss arsenal includes short- and long-term medications as well as minimally invasive surgeries. We offer you the most effective treatments available today and are devoted to seeing you succeed.
Innovative and personalized bariatric services
We offer a wide range of medical and surgical bariatric treatments, tailored to your needs and weight loss goals. Our bariatric services include:
- Bariatric surgery: Our board-certified bariatric surgeons perform the most effective types of weight loss surgeries available today, including gastric sleeve and complex revision surgeries. We also offer several minimally invasive and endoscopic (no incision) bariatric procedures for people who struggle with severe obesity. See more on bariatric surgery.
- Medical weight loss treatments: Certain medications can aid your weight loss efforts. We also offer meal replacement plans (weight loss shakes) that help you lose weight without surgery. Learn more about medical weight loss.
