Surgical Weight Loss Procedures
Manhattan Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery Program at Lenox Hill Hospital offers a full range of weight loss surgery options, providing patients and their physicians with access to the latest in weight loss surgery procedures. This ensures that every patient in our program receives the bariatric surgery that is best suited to their unique needs, physiology, and long-term weight management goals.
Each surgical weight loss procedure offers slightly different benefits, risks, and post-surgical effects, so it’s important to match each patient’s’ expectations and goals with the right bariatric operation. With the exception of the LAP-BAND procedure, bariatric surgery is permanent and non-reversible.
Our world-renowned bariatric surgery team performs the following types of weight-loss surgery:
- Gastric Bypass Surgery (laparoscopic and open)
- LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System
- Sleeve Gastrectomy
- Duodenal Switch
- Complex Bariatric Revisional Surgery
Our team of specialized bariatric surgeons, registered nurses and support staff in New York City are available to provide you with comprehensive pre-operative education and medical assessments to help you decide whether or not bariatric surgery is the right choice for you and your family.
Comprehensive Pre-Operative Education & Assessment
We pride ourselves on the quality of weight loss surgery education which we provide, and we strive to put prospective patients at ease by explaining in detail what the bariatric surgery procedures involves, and what the limitations of surgery are.
We understand that the vast majority of our patients have spent many years struggling with both the physical and psychological effects of obesity, and the decision to undergo a life-changing procedure like bariatric surgery is one that requires careful consideration. We encourage you to thoroughly research your weight loss surgery options, as well as your non-surgical options, connect with other bariatric patients, and consult with our team of obesity experts prior to deciding whether or not to pursue weight loss surgery.
To learn more about the benefits and limitations of each type of weight loss surgery offered here at the Manhattan Minimally Invasive & Bariatric Surgery Program in New York City, contact us to register in our free weight loss seminar at Lenox Hill Hospital. During the seminar, you will be provided with detailed information about the causes of obesity, surgical treatment options, realistic outcomes and potential risk factors.
