Bariatric Surgery


If you’re considering weight loss surgery, The Center for Surgical Weight Loss & Wellness at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center wants to help. At AtlantiCare, bariatric surgery is only the beginning. We offer multiple surgery options, plus a Surgical Weight Loss “Boot Camp”: an intensive, pre-surgery orientation program and patient support group.

Our weight loss & wellness center offers the most comprehensive program of its kind in southeastern New Jersey — with a highly trained team focused on helping patients attain their weight loss goals and achieve optimum health.

Additionally, for both patients and families, we provide personalized, compassionate support in all aspects of bariatric care, including:

  • Surgery
  • Nursing (for care and patient education)
  • Nutrition
  • Physical therapy and exercise
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Psychological counseling
  • Patient care coordination

AtlantiCare has been designated by the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) as a Bariatric Center of Excellence since 2005. This designation recognizes a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery.
