Bariatric Surgery (Gastric Banding, Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass)

Weight-loss surgery can be a life-changing procedure for many people. At Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), we have the most established bariatric surgery program in the region. We perform hundreds of successful surgeries every year, including gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, LAP-BAND® and revision surgeries.

We believe that feeling fully informed about your weight-loss surgery – including what to expect before, during and after the procedure – leads to better results.

That’s why the first step to joining the bariatric surgery program at LVHN is all about education. Sign up for one of our free informational events. We hold them many times a month, so it’s easy to find a session that fits into your schedule. Or, watch our informational videos online. We also offer informational events in Spanish.
