About the Weight Loss Clinic
Formed in 2000 as a division of Central PA Surgical Associates, Ltd., The Weight Loss Clinic is a stand-alone, full service bariatric-care office run by physicians. It provides pre-operative and post-operative care for all patients enrolling in the bariatric program. The Weight Loss Clinic is the point of entry for patients seeking bariatric surgery at PinnacleHealth.
The staff at The Weight Loss Clinic consists of a full-time medical doctor specializing in weight control issues (Lawrence A. Wieger, DO), nutritional advisors, insurance processors and other patient care members. The surgeons (Luciano DiMarco, DO, FACOS, Scot Currie, DO and Matt Davidson, DO) have over a decade of bariatric surgery experience with laparoscopic gastric bypass and also with the laparoscopic adjustable band procedure. All of the surgeons are members of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery. The surgeons also train other surgeons, including a surgical fellow, in these techniques and are regular speakers at local and regional medical meetings.
In addition to preparing patients for bariatric surgery and following them after surgery, a physician-directed diet program, directed by Dr. Wieger, is available for patients afflicted with obesity or severe obesity who are not interested in surgery.
