Research

Advancing bariatric surgery while improving patients’ lives.

At Allegheny Health Network Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, we understand the day-to-day struggles that obesity brings. We understand how obesity can decrease one’s quality of life. The decision to undergo bariatric surgery can be a complicated one, too. There are many factors in the decision making process—from learning about the procedures available, to verifying insurance coverage, to finding the right doctor and making the commitment to live a healthier lifestyle.

Bariatric surgery changes one life—physically, emotionally, and socially.

The good news is that Allegheny Health Network Bariatric and Metabolic Institute has a nationally recognized reputation for delivering positive outcomes in bariatric surgery.

At Allegheny Health Network Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, we are helping more people each year reach and maintain their weight loss surgery goals. Our experience and our ongoing research in bariatric surgery, obesity research, internal medicine, behavioral science, and related fields help us provide the very best care in bariatric surgery.

Research shows that bariatric surgery has many benefits in addition to the weight loss; from resolving migraines, obstructive sleep apnea, asthma, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, GERD, and mortality. In fact, 95% of bariatric patients say that the surgery has improved their quality of life.

We currently have more than 200 active clinical trials that range from allergy and breathing disorders to surgery and transplant.
