Weight loss, or bariatric, surgery is a significant step in taking control of your health. Our team works closely with you both before and after surgery to give you the tools you need to be successful over the long-term.
And with our new Virtual Pathway to Surgery, Guthrie gives you the option of greatly reducing the number of office visits before and after the procedure by holding them online.
Once you commit to a healthier lifestyle, you can begin losing weight after your very first appointment.
To get started, schedule a consultation to meet with a member of our team or call 570-886-9491 to learn more.
What to Expect
Guthrie Weight Loss Center offers two surgical weight loss options. Based on your medical conditions, overall health and desired weight loss. Our fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon works with you to decide the best procedure.
All surgeries are performed laparoscopically through several small incisions in the abdomen. The procedures are considered minimally invasive and extremely safe.
Advantages of laparoscopic surgery compared with open surgery:
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Fewer infections
- Earlier return to daily activities
