Our Team

Dedicated to helping you achieve your weight loss goals

Bariatric Surgeon: Dr. Brandon Andrew
Our bariatric surgeon and medical director, Dr. Brandon Andrew, specializes in gastric sleeve and gastric bypass weight loss surgery procedures.

Dr. Andrew was fellowship trained at the Bariatric Surgery Program of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He earned his medical degree with honors in research from Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL, and completed a five-year residency in General Surgery at Guthrie/Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, PA.

He is medical director of the Medical and Surgical Weight Loss Clinic. He also has an interest in gallbladder, biliary tract disease, and hernias.

Dr. Andrew has published manuscripts and abstracts, and has spoken at national conferences on topics such as patient management before and after bariatric surgery, appendicitis in pregnancy, and management of gallbladder and biliary tract diseases.

The registered dietitian (RD) is an important member of the bariatric team. The role of the dietitian is to provide nutrition education, counseling and support to guide patients through healthy lifelong changes.

Certified exercise professional:
A member of the hospital’s Rehabilitation Services team will create a personalized exercise plan with different types of movements with correct body mechanics. This exercise plan will be used before and after surgery.

After surgery, you may need to change the way you take your medications. To help with this, one of our pharmacists will meet with you prior to surgery to answer questions and give you recommendations and guidelines to follow.

Spiritual Services:
The weight loss journey is a significant lifestyle change that affects the body, mind and spirit. Our chaplains are available, upon request.

Bariatric Program Coordinator:  

The Medical and Surgical Weight Loss Clinic program coordinator at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital assists in the patient’s journey by answering questions about insurance coverage and hospital stay, and ensuring the educational components of the pre-surgery and post-surgery are completed.
