Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford re-designated Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence


The Bariatric and Weight Management Program at LMH, which includes Sheldon Randall, MD, Andras Sandor, MD and Khaled Yehia, MD, offers patients an expert team of surgeons, specially trained nurses, psychologists, dietitians and respiratory therapists who work with them every step of the way. Superior patient care, results and satisfaction are the cornerstones of the program.

“We are honored to be re-designated a Center of Excellence by the American Society For Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery,” said Dr. Randall, the program’s director. “This designation is a true testament to the world class care we provide at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Clinical excellence is what we strive for every day.”

The Bariatric and Weight Management Program offers the entire spectrum of weight loss surgical procedures (gastric bypass, adjustable gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy) with both the traditional open surgical technique and the laparoscopic approach. The program continues caring for patients long after surgery with ongoing support groups, consultations with experienced and caring nutritionists and follow up appointments with their surgeon.
