My husband John and I both had gastric bypass in 2008. Dr Gagne was wonderful. I have since moved to Illinois and have put on quite a bit of weight. Dr Gagne always told me while I was living in Pittsburgh if I ever felt that I needed his help because I was putting weight on, that I should contact him right away. gastric bypass is a tall and not a cure.I wish that I was still in Pittsburgh so that I could contact him. He is awesome.

Wow , I can not even begin to say enough good things about Dr Gagne and his staff and about what this operation did for my fife 14 years ago , yes 14 years ago ! I live a normal life in a normal body , no complications , no regrets just happy to walk in a store and buy any thing I want off the rack. I kept the weight off 125 lbs. it didn't take a great effort but I did not go back to my old eating habits either . They told me " IT IS A TOOL" use it like one you have to work at it. No miracle

I considered bariatric surgery for over a year before actually having it done. I researched surgeons for several months during this process and found Dr. Gagne's record to be impeccable. His personality and vested interest in each of his patients is truly genuine. He is a very down to earth man and will speak WITH you, not AT you. He will speak with you about every step of the way. Bedside manner; stellar. Surgical skills; amazing. Compassionate, considerate, intelligent, all around great guy.

Unable to find contact information for Dr. Gagne. All info points to Allegheny Health Network that he is no longer a doctor in that practice. One of my best friends had him as her doctor and loved him, I am in search of Dr. Gagne so I myself can become a patient. Thank you!

I had gastric bypass in 2010. Dr. Gagne helped me so much with this surgery. I have had some other issues and he has helped me with them. I don't know where I would be today without him.

Find this doctor. He is the best, and he treats you like your his own child. I knew 6 people who had barriatric surgery from different doctors all around the same time. I AM THE ONLY ONE OF THE 6 THAT DID NOT HAVE ANY COMPLICATIONS. all the others had to go back for procedures to fix problems. This doctor is perhaps most experienced, and really cares. I'm so glad I found him.

I haven't had my surgery yet, but I have been seeing Dr. Gagne and everyone in the office since September 2015. Everyone makes you feel special when your there, they smile. The nutritionists are so helpful. It' s a very long process getting prepared for surgery, but with a Dr. and staff like all of these , it makes it so much easier.

About Me

Care Philosophy

Bariatric surgery is not just weight loss surgery; it's also about improving the health and medical problems of patients that struggle with excess weight. Care of patients and improving their lives has always been the main priority in my 18 years of practice, and Butler Health System provides me the opportunity to do just that.
