For appointments and information, please call (212) 746-5294

After a careful and thorough evaluation and assessment, our team may recommend bariatric surgery as the optimal method of treatment. It is important to note that weight is only one of several criteria when considering bariatric surgery. Candidates may include those who:

  • are 100 pounds or more overweight or have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or above
  • are 80 pounds or more over ideal weight or have a BMI of 35 or above, with related health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea
  • have had multiple weight-loss attempts with no long-term success
