Weight Center

The UMass Memorial Weight Center provides a patient-focused bariatric surgery program designed to help adults struggling with obesity and weight-related diseases. Surgical procedures, such as gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, are generally considered for a select group of patients with body mass index (BMI) greater than 40, or 35 if patients have certain associated medical conditions. Pre- and post-surgical appointments with our medical, nutritional and behavioral specialists help you make a lifelong commitment to improved health. 

 Getting Started

All patients interested in weight loss surgery at UMass Memorial are required to complete an orientation. For your convenience, we have three easy ways to get started. Choose one that works for you.

  • Visit the Weight Center, Monday through Friday during the hours of 8:30 to 4:00 pm, to watch the orientation at our clinic. After you complete the 20-minute orientation, you'll have an opportunity to book your first appointment with a Weight Center physician.
