The Northeast Bariatric Center at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Hazleton is dedicated to providing its patients with a compassionate, comprehensive and multi-disciplinary program for treating the disease of morbid obesity. The program offers exercise, behavioral and nutritional education to assist in maximizing the benefits of a patient’s weight-loss surgery. We strive to continue to offer program and surgical excellence with successful outcomes.

You can expect the following from the program:

  • Receive extensive patient education from our bariatric nurse coordinator who is a certified bariatric nurse, CBN.

  • Meet with our registered dietitian to discuss healthy lifestyle changes before and after surgery.

  • Undergo a physical therapy fitness evaluation that measures your resting metabolic rates and body composition and creates an appropriate exercise protocol based on target heart rates and individual needs.

  • Participate in studies to determine your psychological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health.

  • Participate in support groups to help prepare you for not only the physical changes of bariatric surgery, but also the emotional and mental obstacles.

  • Become a patient for life as we offer life-long follow-ups post-surgery.
