Your Journey to a Healthier Life Starts Here!


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity is a common, serious, and costly disease. While obesity is often caused by poor eating and lack of exercise, it can also be impacted by underlying medical conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, and genetics.

When your weight is impacting your overall health and wellness, the Bariatric and Weight Management Program at Cooley Dickinson will support you in achieving a healthier life.

Proper weight management combined with weight loss surgery has been the only intervention shown to produce long term weight loss with reduction or resolution of many of the obesity-related medical problems.
