Bariatric Surgery: Experts Recommend High-Volume Surgeons

So, you’ve finally decided to undergo bariatric surgery. Congratulations! But the decision-making isn’t quite over yet…

From the type of surgery, to the timing of your recovery, to choosing a surgical center, you’ve got to put the time in and do your research. But the most important choice of all is choosing a qualified surgeon with lots of experience.

Bariatric surgery has been established as a safe and effective surgical procedure. That being said, some surgeons are better than others. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that dangerous surgical complications occur twice as frequently in surgeries performed by less experienced surgical teams compared to highly experienced surgeons.

So what’s the solution? Industry leaders recommend high-volume hospitals/surgeons with board certifications. And don’t forget about what happens after your surgery! Make sure that your surgeon provides comprehensive and accessible aftercare.

With Dr. Garber and New York Bariatric Surgery, you get all of this and more. Dr. Garber, Founder and Director of the New York Bariatric Group as well as the Chief of Bariatric Surgery for the entire Catholic Health System, St. Francis Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, and Hudson Valley Hospital Center, has performed over 7,000 bariatric surgeries throughout his extensive career. When you choose NYBG, you are choosing health, happiness, and safety.

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.
