GI Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine is dedicated to helping patients accomplish their health and weight loss goals.
Our specialties include:
- Laparoscopic and robotic bariatric surgery, which uses the most advanced techniques to perform weight loss surgery
- Metabolic surgery, which aims to put type 2 diabetes into long lasting remission
- Minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery, which addresses a broad variety of disorders, ranging from hernias to problems that arise in the stomach, gall bladder, esophagus and intestine
Our use of cutting-edge, minimally invasive methods means small incisions, a short hospital stay (if any), and a quicker recovery from your operation. All surgery is performed at NewYork-Presbyterian, the #1 hospital in New York City for 17 years in a row.
Our physicians are experts in the field as well as active researchers who work to find new and better ways to treat obesity. As part of that effort, patients may be able to participate in clinical trials, giving them access to treatments that might not be available elsewhere.
Our doctors are also faculty members of Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City and actively train the next generation of GI metabolic and bariatric surgeons.
Since 2012, we are proud to have met the criteria for a Comprehensive Center with Adolescent as per the American College of Surgeons Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. This designation goes to centers that engage in ongoing quality improvement initiatives, closely track their results, and provide complete specialized care for all patients, including those with the most challenging and complex conditions, in order to ensure the best outcomes.
In addition to surgery, our program includes counseling, medical obesity screening, and extensive follow-up by an expert team of board-certified bariatric surgeons, advanced nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, and registered dietitians. We also offer one-on-one peer support in addition to professionally moderated support group meetings for anyone considering surgery, those who have had surgery, or for the patient's family members or friends.
