Weight Management/Weight Loss Surgery

Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence


The Hallmark Health System Center for Weight Management and Weight Loss Surgery has been designated as an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence.

With this special designation, Lawrence Memorial Hospital joins an elite group of hospitals in Massachusetts that have been classified as ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence. In the United States, there are fewer than 500 hospitals designated as ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence.

In addition, the ASMBS and American College of Surgeons (ACS) have given the bariatric program at Hallmark Health System’s Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford full accreditation in the new, unified Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).This designation is reserved for bariatric surgery programs that have demonstrated history of successful patient outcomes.

Our Team


The Center’s multi-disciplinary team includes bariatric physician specialists Andras Sandor, MD, and Jennifer Lane, MD, as well as nursing specialists, nutritionists, physical therapists and other clinicians to help patients finally achieve and sustain their weight loss goals. The team works closely with each patient to encourage and support them every step of the way.

The Center provides one-on-one access to clinical, nutritional and behavioral health specialists to help patients get in the right frame of mind to make significant lifestyle changes, healthy eating, exercise and embrace the strategies that lead to successful weight loss. Monthly support groups are also an integral part of the program as patients learn from experts and each other the most effective strategies for losing weight, keeping it off and maintaining a healthier lifestyle.
