Bariatric Surgery

If you’ve tried other weight loss strategies before like professionally supervised diets to medications and haven’t found success, bariatric surgery may be an option to discuss with your doctor. At Mount Sinai Doctors – Jackson Heights, our bariatric surgeons specialize in the newest laparoscopic, or minimally invasive, techniques for weight loss surgery. Our team also includes specialists in nutrition, cardiology, gastroenterology, psychology, and pulmonology who will help you throughout your weight loss journey.

What Is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, assists in weight loss. The surgery reduces the size of the usable stomach, limits the number of food calories that can be absorbed, and alters the hormones made by the gastrointestinal tract, reducing the feeling of hunger.

In addition to helping patients accomplish long-term weight loss, bariatric surgery can have a positive impact on your overall health. It can improve your diabetes and high blood pressure, and obesity-related conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, obstructive sleep apnea, and degenerative joint disease.

In the convenience of our Queens office, we provide consultations for bariatric surgery, as well as comprehensive care before and after your procedure. At The Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, our surgeons perform many types of weight loss surgery, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.
