Best Weight Loss Surgery NYC

Many of us would like to lose a few pounds here or there. But if a sedentary lifestyle or years of poor eating habits has led to obesity or even morbid obesity, you may be considering bariatric surgery. Which then begs the question, “What’s the best weight loss surgery in NYC?”

Is there one bariatric surgery that works for everyone? No–different weight-loss patients have different needs or reasons for having a procedure. There are, however, surgical procedures that present the best opportunities for you to lose excess weight and keep it off in the long term. The best weight loss surgery is tailored to your specific needs.

Weight loss surgery is a good option for those suffering from diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other ailments caused by being overweight. After seeing a bariatric surgeon, many forms of diabetes disappear or symptoms are greatly reduced and other issues (including some cases of cancer) are greatly diminished.

What’s the Best Weight Loss Surgery for You?

Every patient has different needs–so there are different procedures to help with weight loss. The following are several options available to you:

  • Adjustable Gastric Banding
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD)
  • Gastric Bypass

Adjustable Gastric Banding

Also known as the lap band, a soft silicone band is inserted laparoscopically around the upper portion of the stomach. The band is filled with saline solution to the desired amount, effectively limiting the amount of food that’s allowed to enter the stomach. This band can be adjusted through a small port under the skin.

This is one of the least invasive weight loss procedures we offer at New York Minimally Invasive Surgery. In fact, once the weight goal has been met and the patient feels good about where they are, the band can be removed. There is no surgery done on the stomach, intestines, or elsewhere.
