Program Highlights

Experience and Teamwork

Our roots in performing weight loss surgery begin over 30 years ago with the pioneering efforts of Dr. George Blackburn.   We are one of Boston's oldest and most experienced centers with a multidisciplinary, dedicated team of specially trained doctors, nurses, dietitians, social workers, and exercise physiologists.

Center of Excellence

We are proud to be the first in the country to achieve the highest level accreditation from the American College of Surgeons for our safe, comprehensive program and our commitment to excellence in the care and treatment of people undergoing weight loss surgery. 

Respect and Dignity

We work to provide caring and understanding, through a quality of care that is personal and with respect to individuals' privacy.   We see our patients as individuals with specific needs.

Support and Encouragement

We are dedicated to providing education and assistance, through the entire weight loss process. Access to all disciplines will provide the tools needed to reduce risks to health and aid in weight loss success.

Science and Innovation

We are a program dedicated to providing the best treatment options available by advancing technology, surgical techniques, and education.  Our program provides the full range of state-of-the-art open and laparoscopic surgical procedures and treatments.  Our relationships with others within the Harvard system allows us to offer cutting edge treatments derived from the most up to date research.
