Patient Information

Explore your options for successful weight loss, including bariatric (weight loss) surgery and medical nutrition therapy. At University of Maryland Center for Weight Management and Wellness, we offer a comprehensive surgical and medical program that can help you change your life.

Successful Weight Loss Through Bariatric Surgery and Lifestyle Changes

Studies show that surgical and medical treatments are effective ways to begin your weight loss program. To have long-term success with weight loss, patients must make a lifelong commitment to change their diet and exercise. 

By choosing a healthy lifestyle, people who once struggled with obesity can also reduce or eliminate conditions that can lead to heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure, including:

  • High blood pressure

  • High cholesterol

  • Sleep apnea

  • Type 2 diabetes

Our head surgeon, along with our highly skilled team of physicians, nurses and registered dietitians all specialize in caring for weight loss surgery patients. With our expertise and experience, we can help you lose weight—and keep it off.
