Endoscopy can provide a low risk, quick, and simple way to examine or provide treatments. At New York Bariatric Group we are able to combine our surgical offerings with endoscopic offerings, to ensure a wide variety of treatments are available.

Do Your Surgeons Offer Endoscopy?

Yes. The New York Bariatric Group is proud to be the only bariatric surgery practice in New York State with an AAASF-certified endoscopy suite in the office. AAASF stands for American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. The certification from AAASF is based on an evaluation of institutions that looks for the highest standards of patient safety and quality of care. By having the endoscopy suite right in the office, we can quickly diagnose and treat problems you may develop before and after surgery. Our team of weight loss surgery experts at New York Bariatric Group has one of the largest endoscopy experiences in the area related to bariatric surgery and the treatment of obesity.

How Does This Benefit Me?

There are unique considerations when working with a bariatric patient. Our surgeons have dedicated their careers to understanding the needs of bariatric patients and the challenges they face. Other practices may refer their patients to a separate gastroenterologist who has little knowledge of the anatomy of bariatric surgery patients. However, at New York Bariatric Group, one of our experienced surgeons will perform your endoscopy in the privacy of our own office. This is more comfortable, familiar, and efficient than sending our patients to a hospital. You continue to receive the quality of care you expect from our team.

What Types of Endoscopy Do You Perform?

We perform endoscopy through the mouth as well as colonoscopy. Colonoscopies are important to screen for polyps and cancer in patients over the age of 50, with a family history of colon cancer, change in bowel habits, as well as rectal bleeding.

When you meet with a surgeon at New York Bariatric Group, we will discuss any options for endoscopy. Please ask us if you have any questions about these procedures specifically.

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.

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.
