The best surgeons in the world display a natural sense of courage and confidence and are highly educated in their respective field. Superior hand-eye coordination and the ability to stay calm under pressure are two other requirements. Specific skill sets with medical instruments and experience that goes along with these are first and foremost, and are absolutely essential for success.

A medical surgeon represents the best of the best – the highest skilled doctors in the medical field. What separates the very best surgeons from the average ones? Experience, a record of success and a caring nature. The very best, highest skilled surgeons care about people. Our very own Dr. Garber, Dr. Holover, Dr. Angstadt and Dr. Andrade are among the elite surgeons in the world. Our record of over 4500 procedures speaks for itself and the long term success our patients experience is a testament to the support and guidance we give to each and every patient.

Patient Testimonial – Stephanie from Merrick

“Before having bariatric surgery I never wanted to get out of bed. I was always tired and I lost my breath easily. Exercise and basic everyday activity was extremely difficult. The excess weight affected every aspect of my life. In addition, I suffered from severe sleep apnea.

Life after surgery is great! It has given me the opportunity to do things I used to find impossible. Now, I am very active. I try to swim at least 4 times a week. I am able to run and walk for a long period of time without getting tired and I no longer suffer from sleep apnea or any other health issue related to obesity. I am finally the 24 year old girl I’ve always wanted to be!

The guidance and support I received from Dr. Garber is amazing. He is kind and always makes me comfortable when I see him. Over the years I established a very nice relationship with him. He is a great doctor and really cares about his patients!”

"Dr. Holover has a great personality, I love him, I consider him a good friend, and I recommend him to everyone. He and his staff are amazing. I thought my recovery would be worse, but it wasn’t. It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"

"I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great, after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world."

"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"
