Bariatric Surgery New Jersey

Bariatric surgery, or weight loss surgery can be a very effective, long-term solution if you are suffering from obesity. Patients may lose over half of their excess body weight after surgery. Further, the risks of surgery are often lower compared to doing nothing about obesity. Our weight loss center has achieved excellent results performing Gastric Bypass, Gastric Band and Gastric Sleeve procedures. The Gastric band includes Lap-Band® and Realize Band®. Please browse our website for more information about the options available to you.

Obesity is an epidemic in the United States. A majority of Americans are either overweight or obese. It now affects almost a quarter of New Jersey residents. Unfortunately, diets and weight loss medications, fail almost 99% of the time. This is especially true for morbidly obese people (100 lbs. or more overweight).

Weight loss surgery can be effective in fighting obesity and its related diseases. It may improve type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. If you have tried diet and exercise with no success, it may be time to consider surgery.
