Weight Loss Management & Obesity Medicine

The weight loss and obesity medicine physicians of NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester work with patients to set realistic weight loss goals and improve their health. Physicians may help patients adjust their lifestyle habits, diet, and physical activity levels.

Our weight loss surgeons offer minimally invasive bariatric surgery to help morbidly obese patients lose weight and improve their long-term health.

Bariatric surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester offer a full range of laparoscopic weight loss surgeries, including:

  • Gastric banding
  • Sleeve gastrectomy
  • Gastric bypass

Patients undergo these procedures at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester (formerly Lawrence Hospital).

Our comprehensive approach to weight management includes a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, nurse practitioners, registered dietitians, and psychologists. This has earned NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester (formerly Lawrence Hospital) recognition as a Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) facility.

  • Other weight management services we offer include:
  • Body-contouring procedures
  • Pre-surgical educational seminars
  • Post-surgical support groups

We maintain lifelong relationships with our patients and support their quest to maintain a healthy weight.
