The UPMC Hamot Bariatric Surgery and Weight Management Center in Erie, PA is dedicated to providing you with the services and support necessary to make your weight loss surgery a success.
Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is a surgical procedure that decreases the size of the stomach, allowing patients to eat smaller portions of food and still feel full, resulting in weight loss. Bariatric surgery is a treatment option for people living with morbid obesity - especially for those who have not experienced long-term weight loss success through other means.
