Weight Center

Weight loss can be difficult and requires hard work and commitment. For some, the journey to a healthy weight requires modifying diet and physical activity. For others, it might also include bariatric surgery.

We can help.

Claxton-Hepburn's Weight Center can help you find the best plan for achieving your weight loss goals. In partnership with Central New York Surgical Physicians, Claxton-Hepburn now provides patients seeking bariatric surgery the opportunity to receive their preoperative and post-operative care close to home. Lasting from six to 12 months, the program allows you to meet with specialists at CHMC such for nutrition, cardiology, sleep medicine, and mental health needs to determine if bariatric surgery is the right choice. When you're ready for the procedure, surgery will be scheduled at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse. Crouse Health's bariatric program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and has been recognized as a Blue Distinction Center+. After surgery, you will complete your postoperative care right here at Claxton-Hepburn.
