We're here for you every step of the way

Undergoing bariatric surgery is one of the most important decisions a person can make, and not one to be made without serious consideration and consulation.

Why choose Jefferson Torresdale Hospital for your weight-loss solution? Our highly professional, full-service, Comprehensive Center for Weight-Loss Surgery offers many advantages:

  • staff members who understand the challenges that individuals with obesity face, and who seek to responsibly evaluate their health condition and history;
  • help for patients who need additional conservative, noninvasive, lifestyle solutions, and definitive recommendation for surgery for others;
  • and a provider group that will give patients a lifetime of care, for a long-term solution to their condition.

We know how to help patients with serious obesity and complications, including those who have diabetes (a condition that affects a majority of the center's patients.) Office and consulting personnel include highly trained physicians, nurses, dietitians, and psychologists - supported by competent, helpful administrative office staff.

*Recommendation for surgery must come through medical consensus, and patients must attempt or have attempted non-invasive weight loss first. Patients must agree to appropriate weight-loss goals, and demonstrate an ability to adhere to an appropriate diet.
