Center for Weight Loss Surgery

A Long History of Success

Danbury Hospital’s Center for Weight Loss Surgery is the quality leader in the state of Connecticut. In 2006, we were the first and only hospital in the state of Connecticut to receive 1A accreditation from the American College of Surgeons, Bariatric Surgery Network. To date, we have helped thousands of patients through weight loss surgery.

Weight loss surgery is not just about your appearance. Even more important than how much better you will look is how much better you will feel, and how much healthier you will become. More than half of our patients are able to stop taking most (often all) of their medications within six months of their surgery since many of their previous medical concerns are eliminated.

Tailored To Your Individual Needs

Your story and your journey are unique and the solution to your problem with obesity should be individualized too. At Danbury Hospital, our bariatric treatment plans are personalized and closely monitored by our team to ensure that we are providing the comprehensive solution that will change your life. From the first event you attend through your medical evaluation and surgery, our surgeons are focused on finding the best solutions for you. We are proud of delivering the highest surgical safety and follow-up care to guide you to a new future of health and fitness. Your case will be handled by a top-notch surgical team, supported by specialists trained in weight-related treatment.

Classes and Support Groups

Our team is committed to your success. Since research shows that patients who attend support groups regularly are more successful with their weight loss and mental adjustment, we offer a dedicated monthly support group that provides education, nutritional support, medical advice, and guest speakers. You will learn firsthand about weight loss surgery from patients who have experienced it and you will also be encouraged to share your own experiences.
