Our multidisciplinary team brings years of experience in bariatric surgery and provides a comprehensive program designed to meet all of your weight loss needs. Our board-certified bariatric surgeons are experts in minimally invasive surgery for weight loss, including gastric bypass and gastric sleeve procedures, and have collectively performed thousands of bariatric surgical cases.

In a sensitive environment, with facilities that are designed to accommodate our patients and ongoing support groups, we have a highly experienced program team that is committed to helping you lose the weight, improve your health and enhance the quality of your life.

When asking ‘Am I a candidate for bariatric surgery?’ it’s important to remember that patients must meet medical guidelines to qualify for bariatric surgery. Surgical weight loss may be the right choice for you, if you are experiencing the following health conditions:

  • are 50 pounds or more overweight
  • have a BMI 30 or greater and have medical conditions related to being overweight, such as:
  • have coronary artery disease
  • have type 2 diabetes
  • have high cholesterol
  • have hypertension
  • have obstructive sleep apnea
  • have osteoarthritis of the knees

We invite you to join an informational session or talk with our expert staff to better understand if weight loss surgery at Long Island Community Hospital is the right option for you.
