Bariatric Surgery

IMG_0727Obesity continues to impact our community, while creating physical, emotional and mental struggles for those affected each day. The Grand View Health Bariatric & Metabolic Institute was established to help members of our community living with obesity and related issues redirect their journey to a healthy, active lifestyle.

Surgical weight loss is a significant, life-changing decision that shouldn’t be made alone. Our comprehensive team is designed to educate, guide and support you to answer questions and provide the care you deserve. Your support system will be led by fellowship-trained Bariatric Surgeon, Michael Fishman, MD, along with a physician assistant, registered dietitian, behavioral therapist and additional team members who will be with you from the start.

Conveniently located steps away from Grand View Hospital at the Sellersville Outpatient Center, we serve residents of Montgomery County, Bucks County and surrounding areas. Dr. Fishman specializes in minimally invasive procedures, which allows patients to experience shorter recovery times and focus on their new, healthy lives.
