At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton (BID-Milton), we understand the decision to have weight loss surgery is a crucial one, and, for many, a lifesaving one. That’s why we offer a caring and experienced team of weight loss surgery experts who provide personalized care and support throughout your weight loss journey.
BID-Milton’s Weight Loss Surgery Program is nationally accredited under the Bariatric Surgery Center Network Accreditation Program of the American College of Surgeons. This accreditation ensures you of the highest quality bariatric care that meets rigorous, national standards.
As a member of the Beth Israel Deaconess Bariatric Network, BID-Milton works closely with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in delivering a safe, comprehensive weight loss surgery program committed to excellent care and treatment. Advanced, fellowship-trained Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center bariatric surgeons provide pre- and post-operative care and perform lap adjustable gastric band and gastric sleeve weight loss surgeries at BID-Milton. Patients needing more specialized care, including gastric bypass surgery, have coordinated access to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s program in Boston.
BID-Milton’s weight loss surgery team is led by Medical Director Benjamin Schneider, MD, FACS, a Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center bariatric surgeon and assistant professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School. Our multidisciplinary approach also includes bariatric medicine, mental health, dietitian, and nursing services. A long-term program of aftercare and support helps you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
We encourage you to learn as much as you can about weight loss surgery and its effects on your weight, health and emotional well-being. Surgery can be an effective treatment for many people with obesity. Begin your weight loss journey by attending one of our free educational programs.
