Bariatric Program
Center for Bariatric Surgery and Metabolic Disease

One of the busiest programs in the city, we perform approximately 400 cases per year. The Center was recently recertified as a Center of Excellence by the American College of Surgeons level 1A and was selected as one of only five centers designated by New York State for the surgical treatment of obesity. The Center received HealthGrades highest award for lowest morbidity and mortality in the region.

A multi-disciplinary team that includes Nurses, Nutritionists and Health Psychologists create a comprehensive program and has developed an extensive education program that maximizes the potential of our patients.

The Division offers expertise in foregut surgery and offers the most advanced methods in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease, hernias of the diaphragm and benign and malignant diseases of the esophagus and stomach. Our surgeons have extensive experience also with problems of the pancreas and adrenal glands and employ the most advanced techniques in laparoscopy.
