Bariatric Surgery Offerings
Our weight loss surgeons have performed thousands of gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, lap band, and other bariatric procedures. Our minimally invasive surgeries are not quick fixes for obesity, but are significant tools that allow patients to succeed in losing weight with the appropriate lifestyle changes. Additionally, our surgeries are performed laparoscopically at our bariatric clinic. Laparoscopic procedures generally result in smaller scars, less post-surgical pain, and shorter recovery times.
The gastric sleeve, or sleeve gastrectomy surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure that produces consistently proven results.Learn more
Roux-en-y gastric bypass offers countless benefits for overweight patients and is particularly effective in treating diabetes.Learn more
The Lap Band, or Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band, is among the most popular bariatric procedures due to its comfort and ease.Learn more
In addition to primary bariatric surgery, our weight loss surgeons are well experienced in revisional procedures. If you are in the New York, Manhattan or New Jersey area, and have had weight loss surgery previously but have regained weight, contact us at our bariatric surgery center to learn about your surgical and non-surgical options.
What our patients are saying
“The staff and doctors at the New York Bariatric Group are amazing! They are always patient, helpful, and very understanding and pro-active with questions, problems, etc. After Lap Band surgery I feel fantastic. For the last 6 years I have not had to worry if my clothes would fit. I have been able to maintain my weight loss, and have so much more energy.”
"Dr. Holover has a great personality, I love him, I consider him a good friend, and I recommend him to everyone. He and his staff are amazing. I thought my recovery would be worse, but it wasn’t. It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"
"My results are incredible; I can go to any store and find clothes that fit, I don’t have to go to the big and tall store anymore. My family and friends say I look great, but more so are so happy about my health. Definitely go for it, it is well worth it."
"My recovery was very easy, I started moving around pretty quick because the nurses had me up and about. Dr. Angstadt has a great bedside manner, a cheerful disposition and is very knowledgeable. He was genuinely concerned for me, he answered all of my questions and put me at ease. I couldn’t be happier, I think it is the best decision I ever made."
"I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great, after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world."
"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"

Weight loss balloon The 100% non-surgical solution
At New York Bariatric Group, we offer the weight loss balloon for qualifying patients. The weight loss balloon – either Obalon or Orbera Balloon Capsule – is a device that is placed in the stomach for 6 months. This balloon helps you eat less, which kick starts weight loss.
In studies, patients lost about 3 times as much weight with a weight loss balloon, compared to those who tried diet and exercise alone. If you are interested in trying a non-surgical, effective approach to losing weight, contact us to see if the weight loss balloon may be a good option for you, or learn more about the balloon here.Learn more
Over 75 million adults in America are obese. Obesity is not a simple cosmetic issue; it is a serious health condition linked to diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Excess weight is also linked to shorter life expectancy, more joint pain, and higher risk of cancers including colon and breast cancer. Although it’s easy for many to blame obesity on a “lack of willpower,” this is far from the truth. True experts in obesity understand the complexities of weight gain and the human body’s resistance to losing weight and keeping it off. Factors including genetics, environment, medical history, hormones and metabolism are inescapable pieces of the battle to lose weight.Learn more
Body Contouring After Weight Loss
After bariatric surgery, many patients will seek plastic surgery procedures to reveal a slimmer, trimmer body contour. The extreme weight loss achieved with bariatric surgical intervention makes it possible to achieve a healthier, happier life for those who have been dealing with obesity.
To help you with this, we have a dedicated cosmetic surgeon to address all cosmetic issues.Learn More
