NYC Health + Hospitals offers a compassionate and comprehensive approach to weight-loss surgery because we understand how being unable to lose weight affects your life, health and self-esteem. We passionately believe in a patient’s ability to transform their life by attaining their ideal weight.
Our three Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgical Centers are dedicated to working with people in any community in New York City who are extremely obese and may be considering weight-loss surgery. This includes people more than 100 pounds over ideal body weight. NYC Health + Hospitals generally performs this surgery on patients because of:
- Health problems because of their weight
- Lack of success with diet and exercise
Weight-loss surgery changes your digestive system to limit how much you can eat or reduces how many calories you can absorb. Your health care team will support your weight-loss surgery during and after this life-changing experience, including sensitive and caring outpatient care at one of our health care centers nearest you. We do this with dedication and compassion, because we believe that weigh-loss surgery may be the key to a new life for those who seek to pursue it.
