Weighing Your Weight Loss options

CMC’s New England Weight Management Institute (NEWMI) has been helping patients meet their weight loss goals for more than a decade and has grown to become the state’s largest surgical weight loss program. Recognized as a comprehensive center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), we have developed a multidisciplinary team of health care providers, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and behavioral health specialists experienced in both bariatric surgery and bariatric medicine. We have a proven track record of success in helping patients achieve weight loss both with and without surgery.

Appointment Options in Response to COVID-19


As we respond to the coronavirus disease, we are making it easier—and safer—to get care. The New England Weight Management Institute at CMC is now offering telehealth visits.

  • Existing patients: Telehealth visits are available for pre-bariatric surgery visits, medical weight loss visits, post operative visits for patients greater than one month post op, and OPTIFAST® follow-up visits
  • Patients who currently have an appointment scheduled: Our staff will be reaching out to you soon to determine if a telehealth visit is appropriate
  • New patients: We are continuing to accept new patients for our non-surgical weight loss programs

Why Choose CMC?


NEWMI is recognized as a comprehensive center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).


At NEWMI, we view obesity as a chronic disease that often requires multiple types of treatments to control. We work with our patients on many fronts to combat this disease. For long term success, we believe that well educated patients need a firm grasp on nutrition and exercise principles along with behavioral tools to combat “mindless eating.” In combination with weight loss surgery, our patients have what they need to successfully maintain a healthy weight lifestyle.


NEWMI physicians and surgeons are able to provide a wide range of weight loss options. Our surgeons have extensive experience with adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric bypass surgery. We also have physicians who specialize in bariatric medicine to guide patients through medical weight loss without surgery. Our dedicated nutritionists and exercise specialists are available to support our patients throughout their weight loss journey.
