Weight-Loss Surgery: A Road to Better Health

Undergoing weight loss surgery is a major decision. We understand that you may have many questions and fears, and so our goal is to provide you with a supportive environment, accurate information and the benefit of our accomplished team.

Morbid obesity is a chronic disease that requires aggressive management. Those who suffer from it can benefit greatly from weight loss surgery. Bariatric surgery helps those who are severely and chronically overweight and have found diet and exercise to be ineffective. It can be a successful, long-term treatment, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Our program draws on the highly skilled and experienced team of Dr. Dominick Gadaleta, MD, and Dr. Larry Gellman, MD. It follows the standards set forth by the North Shore-LIJ Health System and not only meets the guidelines of the American Society of Bariatric Surgery, but has been recognized by it as a Center of Excellence.
