gastric bypass Albany, NY Millions of Americans fall into the category of clinically severe obesity.  When non-surgical approaches to weight loss are unsuccessful, bariatric surgery may be an option, but weight loss surgery is not a quick fix. Our gastric bypass, and vertical sleeve gastrectomy are great first steps.  However, successful, long-term results will require your commitment to education, surgery and a lifestyle change.

Finding a weight loss solution that fits you is important to maintaining a healthy weight. Weight loss surgery is not for everyone. It is important to understand the other steps required to maintain a healthy weight. Exercise and healthy eating are important factors in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Healthy weight loss is a long term process that requires developing healthier habits.

Patients who choose weight loss surgery can lose up to 70 percent of excess weight and can improve or resolve more than 30 obesity-related conditions, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, hypertension and high cholesterol.
