Weill Cornell Medicine’s comprehensive weight loss surgery program provides long-term solutions for people who continually struggle with their weight.
Our physicians are concerned about how heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and even sleep disorders are often the consequences of excessive weight. We understand it can be very challenging, and while many people can succeed in achieving some weight loss, sustaining that weight loss or maintaining optimal weight is often difficult, and for some, impossible.
To help patients lose weight, we offer counseling, medical obesity screening, surgery, if indicated, and extensive follow-up by an expert team of board-certified bariatric surgeons, advanced nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, and registered dietitians.
Our world-renowned surgeons have pioneered innovative surgical procedures that are at the forefront of weight-loss techniques, as well as laparoscopic procedures for a broad range of digestive disorders. We specialize in minimally invasive bariatric surgery, enabling our patients to undergo weight-loss procedures that can be performed through small incisions, facilitating recovery.
Most recently, 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 seven nationwide.
