Strength In Our Core

From our foundation to our aftercare, experience has guided us to our current position as a leader in bariatric surgery. New York Bariatric Group was formed when four of the country’s leading weight loss surgeons decided to join together. Through our collaboration we knew we could form a practice that would change the level of treatment and success that patients were seeing. Today we have grown to be a team of expert, innovative surgeons who help thousands of people find the weight loss success they wanted. Our surgeons represent New York’s elite institution for the treatment of morbid obesity.

Our Experience; Your Success

Our experience means we provide a wide range of treatments options from the non-surgical weight loss balloon, to proven surgical procedures such as laparoscopic adjustable banding, sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric bypass. Past patients will tell you our experience does not stop after your procedure. We know what it takes to lose weight and keep it off, so our comprehensive after-care program allows for the greatest chance of success. This is the case whether you chose the Orbera or Obalon weight loss balloons, or one of our bariatric surgery options.

The weight loss surgeons at New York Bariatric Group are not only recognized in New York City as leading bariatric surgeons, but are also recipients of multiple national awards and commendations. Dr. Garber and his team are proud that they are regularly asked to train other weight loss surgeons around the country, and are actively sought out for their expertise in all areas of bariatrics including Lap Band, gastric sleeve, and gastric bypass. At the same time, the team is using its experience to help develop new methods and bariatric surgery options.

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.

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.
