NYBG Welcomes Newest Surgeon: Dr. Pankti Patel

The New York Bariatric Group is always working to improve the experience of our patients. Whether we’re offering new procedures, providing seminars, or adding the best surgeons to our team, it’s all for our patients.

We’d like to take a little time and introduce you to our newest surgeon, Dr. Pankti Patel!
Dr. Patel started her education in 2003 at the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. Her four years there brought her great success: majoring in Biomedical Engineering, minoring in Chemistry, and graduating Magna cum laude. She acquired her Doctor of Medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria and completed her general surgery residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

After completing her residency, Dr. Patel found her next opportunity on the eastern side of the States. She was a fellow at the Magee Women’s Hospital of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center with their Department of Surgery. During this fellowship she focused on minimally-invasive and bariatric surgery.  Her skills and education have prepared her for a career of success at the New York Bariatric Group.

Dr. Patel has received a wealth of Licenses, Certifications, Honors, and Awards.

Dr. Patel is American Board of Surgery certified as well with the daVinci System for Robotic Surgery. Additionally, she is an active member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons.

Only the best and brightest surgeons join the New York Bariatric Group so our patients have the best care.

Dr. Patel is our newest member at NYBG but her talent with minimally invasive, robotic, and bariatric surgery has placed her with the rest of our experienced, intelligent surgeons.  She is very dedicated to bringing cutting edge technology and innovative surgical techniques to our bariatric patients.

Thomas' success story

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.
