Despite the myth that obesity can be treated by simply “eating less and exercising more,” weight loss, especially in the obese population, is more complicated than that. The weight loss experts at New York Bariatric Group are well aware of the biological, metabolic, psychological, and social barriers to losing weight and keeping it off.

When you begin your journey, you’ll find you have choices. You have a choice of procedures like the gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and Lap Band. You also may choose to try a non-surgical option like the Orbera weight loss balloon. The best way to make your choice of which obesity treatment will be best for you is to learn about the different procedures and then meet with a surgeon to discuss the specifics. You can learn more from our free informational seminar.

The other choice you’ll have is which practice or surgeon to work with. At New York Bariatric Group, we are a leader in terms of our experience and patient success. If you come to an in person seminar, you can meet some of our team and begin to see why so many patients in the New York area choose us.

Hear Why Patients Choose Us

If you are at a point where you wonder if you’ll ever lose a substantial amount of weight, find your energy, and reduce your pain, we understand that feeling. We have thousands of patients who were stuck in that frustration, until they made the choice to begin their journey at New York Bariatric Group.

“Before Lap Band surgery I had difficulty walking up stairs. I was always out of breath and I felt as if I was ‘bursting’ out of my skin. Now that I lost the weight I am able to do so much more and I have my energy back. For the first time in a long time I am proud of myself!”

“After 30 years of dieting and weight gain I thought it was time to look into weight loss surgery. My extensive research brought me to Dr. Garber and the New York Bariatric Group. They not only have the experience that is needed to perform successful surgery but the support needed to help keep the weight off. My surgery is very recent and I have already lost weight and I look forward to losing more and feeling better.”

“Before weight loss surgery I was constantly tired with backaches and leg aches. I always felt awful and hated the idea of walking. After surgery I feel so much better and I am more active. I am living life instead of watching it go by. The whole staff is wonderful and caring at the New York Bariatric Group…. they answer any questions right away and they helped tremendously with all insurance issues. I would recommend New York Bariatric Group to everyone!”

We look forward to working with you and guiding you throughout the entire journey of successful bariatric surgery, to a healthier, longer life.

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.

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
