Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery In Long Island

Obesity is a rising health epidemic in our country. A chronic condition that increases the risk of serious health problems, obesity robs millions of Americans of their quality of life. Limited range of motion, difficulty finding clothes and ongoing aches and pains are just a few of the problems obese people encounter daily. Unfortunately, morbid obesity is difficult to treat through traditional weight loss methods. Bariatric surgery is one of the best options for people that struggle with morbid obesity and have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. Bariatric surgery promotes rapid, substantial weight loss by restricting caloric intake. Surgical treatment is not a quick fix —it is a tool. To succeed, Long Island Obesity Surgery encourages our bariatric surgery patients must commit to making serious lifestyle changes after surgery.


GASTRIC SLEEVE

The majority of the stomach is removed to limit the food it can hold and reduce calorie intake.

​​​​​​​

GASTRIC BYPASS

Stomach capacity is reduced and the digestive system is rerouted to curb food intake and calorie absorption.

GASTRIC BAND

An Adjustable silicone band is placed around the upper portion of the stomach to restrict food consumption.


SURGERY REVISIONS

A secondary procedure is performed for bariatric patients that regained weight or developed a complication.

GASTRIC BALLOON

A silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach to reduce its capacity and cause the feeling of fullness sooner.
