NYBG Welcomes its New Medical Weight Loss Director

This month, New York Bariatric Group taps Dr. Angela Glasnapp to lead its Medical Weight Loss program in NYC, Long Island, New Jersey, and various locations throughout New York & Connecticut.

Dr. Glasnapp is a leader in the weight-loss field. Board-certified in General Surgery by the American Board of Surgery and a diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine, Dr. Glasnapp specializes in nutrition and medical weight loss, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, gastric band removal, revisional bariatric surgery, and much more.

While taking on a new position, Dr. Glasnapp is not new to the NYBG team. She has been a part of the practice since 2022. Dr. Glasnapp is passionate about helping her patients understand that obesity is truly a disease and that there are several surgical and medical treatment options available to help them. She works with patients to find the right path for them, be it bariatric surgery or medical weight-loss medications. By their side every step of the way, her priority is to help her patients become healthier versions of themselves.

While oral and injectable weight-loss medications can be an effective short-term strategy, the long-term success and safety are still being researched and are unknown.

New York Bariatric Group: Weight-Loss Leader 

NYBG is the leader in comprehensive weight-loss solutions. We are a one-stop shop, offering long-term weight-loss treatments with surgery as well as medically-supervised weight loss such as oral and injectable medications. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to losing weight. At NYBG, we work with you to customize a weight-loss program that will work best for you.

Oral and injectable weight-loss medications have been shown to be an effective short-term strategy, but the long-term effects and safety is still unknown. With our Medical Weight Loss Program the ongoing supervision allows doctors to make necessary adjustments to a patient’s treatment plan based on their progress and changes to their health.

Weight-loss surgery is the only proven long-term weight-loss solution. With decades of research, patients have seen sustainable weight loss. We offer multiple weight-loss surgery procedures and our doctors will work with you to find the right option.

Our practice is the best around: 

  • Over 30 surgeons who are leaders in bariatrics, plastic surgery, and medical weight loss.
  • 42,000 successful procedures performed with more being performed every day
  • The #1 gastric balloon practice by volume – most balloons placed in the United States
  • Access to online seminars, support groups, cooking demos, and Q-and-A sessions
  • 100s of videos for patients explaining procedures, answering common questions, and showcasing previous patients 
  • Multiple offices located in three states; NY, NJ, CT 
  • Offering in-person and virtual consultations 
  • Since 2000, we boast over 23 years of success! 

All of our hospitals are Metabolic Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) accredited facilities, which is a prestigious designation bestowed upon only the top-quality bariatric programs.

Stop waiting; start achieving better health today. Together, we’ve got this!

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.
