The New York Bariatric Group to Provide Free Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy to Patient in Need

In the United States, over 35% of adults suffer from obesity and the complications that can come with it: diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypertension to name a few. In an attempt to educate others about and combat obesity, the Obesity Society and the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery started Obesity Week.

During Obesity Week, the brightest minds in bariatrics gather together to discuss cutting-edge research for weight loss. This conference holds the belief that, in time, obesity will be prevented and healed.

In honor of Obesity Week, the New York Bariatric Group has teamed up with Mercy Medical Center and the Obesity Action Coalition to provide a free vertical sleeve gastrectomy.

The New York Bariatric Group is the premier practice for weight-loss procedures, performing over 12,000 surgeries and the most gastric balloon placements in the United States. They have recognized the dangers of obesity and the importance of bariatric surgery as a medical solution.

That is why they have joined with Mercy Medical Center as well as the Obesity Action Coalition to provide one fortunate patient with a free vertical sleeve gastrectomy.

Bariatric surgery is available to many people, but not enough. That’s why Dr. Garber and the rest of his team decided that the patient eligible for this award is one whose insurance cannot cover bariatric surgery.

The NYBG team will be with the patient throughout their entire weight-loss journey: from pre-op informational sessions, to the actual surgery, to post-surgical nutrition and follow-ups. They hope for it to be another step towards the eradication of obesity.
