The decision to lose weight is not simply cosmetic. It can be lifesaving as well. Obesity is a medical condition that is associated with a variety of health problems, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol levels, breathing problems, gastroesophageal reflux disease, degenerative arthritis, skin infections, infertility in women, and certain forms of cancer.
Our surgeons’ expertise in performing weight loss surgery makes them among the best in the world. They have extensive training in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic bariatric surgery techniques. These approaches allow for smaller incisions, less discomfort, and a quicker recovery than conventional open surgery. Our surgeons are supported by a team of anesthesiologists, operating room staff, and nurses who are specially trained in caring for people who have extra weight or morbid obesity.
The safety of bariatric surgery varies considerably, depending on your personal health and medical history, the type of procedure performed, and the experience of both the surgeon and the hospital. No matter which type of surgery you choose, it is vital to have it performed by a highly experienced team, such as the one at NYU Langone. Simply put, the more experience, the better the outcome. Weight loss surgery is performed at Tisch Hospital.

Because surgery is not the right answer for everyone, we offer a wide range of medical weight loss options. Nutritional education, lifestyle guidance, exercise plans, behavioral-mindful eating techniques, and trigger analysis—or discovering which circumstances trigger the desire to eat—are tools that help many people reach their weight loss goals.
