Do you feel like you’re running yourself into the ground every day? That’s how Cyndy was feeling before making a decision that changed her life forever: “Even the simplest daily tasks were difficult for me. Anything from walking upstairs, walking to my job, just being able to walk and talk at the same time, cleaning my house, anything, you name it, it was 100 times more difficult.”

Joint pain and arthritis contributed significantly to Cyndy’s challenges. Millions of people, including 1 in every three people affected by obesity, experience these prohibitive conditions. According to the Arthritis Foundation, every pound of excess weight adds 4 pounds of pressure to your knees. In other words, 100 pounds of excess weight equals 400 pounds of pressure on your joints due to inflammation. 

It’s time you took the pressure off yourself and your joints. New York Bariatric Group has helped thousands of patients, including Cyndy, lose 50-70% of their excess weight and alleviate weight-related conditions. She states confidently, “Trust me on this; the New York Bariatric Group is the place you want to go.”


Cyndy stopped running around in circles and started running half marathons

“I lost a hundred pounds, and I began running, and I never stopped. Once I lost the weight, it took me less than four months before I was running half marathons.”

She’s not the only one to experience improved mobility. A study from the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) discovered:

  • 57% of patients no longer had severe mobility issues after weight-loss surgery
  • About 70% of patients with knee and hip pain or disability experienced improvements in both pain and function thanks to bariatric procedures

The Cleveland Clinic confirms, “…Losing as little as 10 pounds can decrease the progression of your knee osteoarthritis by 50 percent, according to a published study,” so imagine what losing 100 pounds could do for your joint pain. 

Down from a size 18 to a size 2, Cyndy has never stopped celebrating: “I see myself so differently now. I feel like I’m not hiding anymore. I feel like I own the world.”

Now it’s your turn. Get off to a running start and contact the team of experts at NYBG today. As Cyndy puts it, “My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”

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.

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.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.
