About the Center for Weight Management and Wellness

The Center for Weight Management and Wellness at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is a multidisciplinary center that brings together leading experts in both surgical and non-surgical methods of weight management.

Above all else, our goal is to help you reach yours, and identifying the right weight loss solution is a key part of finding success where you may have struggled before. For some, that solution may be working closely with a medical team to create a nutritional plan tailored to lifestyle and dietary preferences. For others, surgical or endoscopic interventions may provide the rapid weight loss desired to launch a path toward a healthier life.

Regardless of what method you choose to take, our approach focuses on achieving and maintaining long-term results. This is why we prioritize ongoing support to all of our patients, long after that first appointment.
