The elements of a successful surgical weight loss program reach far beyond the operating room. EMMC Surgical Weight Loss incorporates nutritional education, physical therapy, professional counseling, peer support, and a nationally recognized surgical program to provide our patients a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach that is unique in the state of Maine. Each of the people you’ll meet will play an important role in helping you reach your goals with surgical weight loss.
