Bariatric Surgery

South Shore Hospital, in clinical affiliation with Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), is pleased to announce the development of a joint bariatric program. Bariatric surgery patients on the South Shore will now be able to receive comprehensive pre- and post-surgery education, testing, and support locally. Neil Ghushe, MD, FACS, of Brigham and Women's Surgical Associates, will serve as the program's bariatric surgeon. Dr. Ghushe is fellowship-trained in bariatric surgery and board certified in surgery.

When patients choose to have bariatric surgery for weight loss, they make a lifetime commitment to their own health and well-being. Much thought, preparation, testing, and follow-up comes with the decision to undergo bariatric surgery, including preoperative behavioral health assessments, nutrition assessments and counseling, weigh-loss classes, and surgical consultations. 

Now patients will have access to these services locally at Brigham and Women's Surgical Associates in Weymouth. Patients may choose to have pre-operative ancillary tests —such as gastrointestinal studies and electrocardiograms at the local provider of their choice as well.

Bariatric patients can also schedule their post-operative appointments including surgical nutrition and behavioral health follow-ups locally. Nutrition and behavioral health services are provided by South Shore Hospital clinicians at the clinic. The only part of the weight-loss journey to take place in Boston will be the surgery itself.
