A healthier life is in your grasp!

If you've struggled to lose weight or maintain weight loss, if your weight is a factor in your diabetes or cardiovascular health, or if your acid reflux is unbearable, the doctors at Saint Agnes Group may be able to help.

Dr. Andrew Averback and Dr. Isam Hamdallah are general and bariatric surgeons who focus on:

Dr. Hamdallah and Dr. Averbach joined the Saint Agnes Bariatric Surgery Center in 2002, and have since performed more than 4,000 bariatric procedures as leaders in the center, helping to make it the top program in Maryland.

The program has helped more patients than any other hospital in the state.
