Morbid Obesity Information and Treatment
Morbid obesity is a clear and present national health crisis. Nearly five percent of the population in the United States suffers from morbid obesity and over thirty percent of Americans are obese. Approximately 300,000 Americans die prematurely from obesity-related complications each year. These numbers are bound to increase, as more than 25 percent of our children are overweight or obese.
Through the Winthrop Surgical Weight Loss Program, we offer long term, sustainable solutions to morbid obesity for patients from Queens, Long Island, and throughout New York.
