Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery

Bariatric or weight loss surgery may be a good option if you’re more than 100 pounds overweight and have tried and failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. Hackensack Meridian Health offers some of the leading bariatric weight loss centers in the New York/New Jersey metro area, offering proven approaches to helping patients lose weight and keep it off.

How Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Works

Weight loss surgery works by changing your stomach and digestive system so that you:

  • Absorb fewer calories and nutrients
  • Eat smaller portions of food and become satisfied more quickly

Of course, weight loss surgery is a tool, not a cure. You’ll achieve successful weight loss and better health through a life-long commitment to exercise and healthy eating.

Is Weight Loss Surgery for You?

Weight loss surgery can help address weight-related health conditions including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Osteoarthritis

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, weight loss surgery may be right for you.

  • Do you have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher?
  • Do you have a BMI of 35 or higher, plus a serious weight-related health condition?
  • Does your weight limit your ability to participate in family, recreation or work activities?
