The Weill Cornell Medicine Adolescent Bariatric Surgery Program is dedicated to helping patients improve their metabolic health through weight loss. Our program offers a minimally invasive surgical treatment for those suffering from severe obesity.The program is designed for adolescents with severe obesity (BMI > 40 or BMI > 35 with serious co-morbidities) who are at the end of their pubertal development and have failed other treatment modalities. Generally, adolescents ages 15-18 years.

The program has been developed by the Divisions of Pediatric Endocrinology and Pediatric Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical Center. The American College of Surgeons has accredited NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital as a Center of Excellence in bariatric surgery with the highest possible designation – the first program to be so named in New York State and one of only a few nationwide.

Our use of cutting-edge, minimally invasive methods means small incisions, a short hospital stay and a quicker recovery from your operation. All surgery is performed at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, a top rated hospital in New York City.
