Emerson Center for Weight Loss

Obesity is a disease. And we’re here to help.

The Emerson Hospital Center for Weight Loss, located at the Center for Specialty Care in Concord, Mass., is here to help you achieve your long-term health goals. We know what it’s like to suffer from the disease called obesity, and we treat each individual with a comprehensive, one-on-one approach. We understand that your decision to undergo any type of weight loss surgery is not just about improving your health. It’s about changing your life.

Inside the program, you’ll find:

Your team. Your hospital.

We know how difficult it is to walk through our doors for the first time; it takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. That is why our experienced and empathetic staff will be with you every step of the way to answer your questions, address your concerns and plan for your continued success.

Your experience at the Center for Weight Loss

Our goal is to help individuals with obesity achieve permanent weight loss. The comprehensive program begins with an evaluation by our specialists who will determine if weight loss surgery is right for you, and then help you throughout the surgical process and assist you long after surgery.

Your first step is to attend a free, two-hour information session where our surgeons and team provide a program overview and describe your weight loss surgery options. You will receive detailed literature and a confidential questionnaire to fill out prior to an initial consultation.
