About the Program

At the heart of our program is our multidisciplinary approach to helping our patients achieve successful long-term weight loss. Our multidisciplinary team of endocrinologists, dieticians, social workers and nurses, along with our renowned surgeons, work in concert with patients to design an individualized weight loss plan that maximizes sustained weight loss and improves metabolic disorders.

The reputation of our program has earned us numerous distinctions, including the Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence certification by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, and the Center of Excellence distinction from Blue Cross-Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna and Health Net, among others.
