Exercise Guidelines

It is important to include exercise in your efforts to lose weight and maintain a healthy size for life. Daily exercise will also help alleviate or avoid some of the health risks and conditions that are associated with obesity.

At Winthrop, our gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and bypass patients are typically encouraged to get up and walk in the recovery room as soon as possible following surgery, and we recommend that they begin walking one to two blocks a day within a week after surgery.

We also encourage our patients to consider joining a gym as part of an effort to establish and maintain a program of regular exercise. Patients with more problematic physical limitations may find that physical therapy programs can help them become more active. Regular exercise is a critical part of achieving optimal weight loss, as well as long-term weight management.

Our Surgical Weight Loss Program and Bariatric Surgery Center's mission is to deliver safe and effective surgical solutions with a compassionate touch. Our bariatric program is operated by NYU Langone Long Island Surgical Associates, P.C., a network of leading physicians and surgeons that provide comprehensive care for patients.
