Welcome to Greater Baltimore Medical Center's Comprehensive Obesity Management Program. Our program is located in Towson, Maryland, and is part of the Bariatric Surgery service. We are a patient-focused center for individuals considering weight loss surgery. Our program is an American Society for Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence, a designation that recognizes obesity treatment programs that are comprehensive in nature and demonstrate a track record of positive outcomes in bariatric surgery. Our program offers surgical approaches to weight loss, with the three most common surgical procedures being Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable gastric banding (LAP-BAND® or REALIZE® Band).
If you or someone you know is severely overweight, you know how devastating it can be. Obesity takes its toll on health, self-esteem and relationships. People with obesity are at greater risk for many serious medical conditions including diabetes, sleep apnea and heart problems. It is important to educate yourself on your options to decide if one of these surgical procedures is right for you. We are here to answer all your questions and work with you to determine whether you are a candidate for weight loss surgery.
