Our physicians play key roles in research studies, including clinical trials, to enhance treatment options for obesity. NewYork-Presbyterian is one of only six centers across the country selected by the National Institutes of Health to take part in a multimillion dollar Bariatric Surgery Clinical Research Consortium, which is conducting a groundbreaking, five-year Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery study. Other studies pursued by our physicians focus on:
