Surgery Programs Ranked Among the Best in the New York Area

The team at NYU Langone Long Island Surgical Associates’ Gastroenterology & GI department, which includes bariatric and general surgery, is proud to have been ranked as one of the best specialty programs in the New York area. This recognition, by the prestigious US News & World Report, highlights the dedication and focus of each of our weight loss surgeons, as well as the efforts of our team of professionals that manage our program before, during and after surgery.

“A dedication to patient safety, focus on the continuum of care and individualized, personal attention all serve to make the WSA surgical program a leader in the region,” says Dr. Collin Brathwaite, director of the bariatric surgery program at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. “This recognition is actually a testament to the entire team here at WSA that tirelessly works toward patient satisfaction and safety every day.”

Indeed, the NYU Langone Long Island Surgical Associates bariatric surgery program has been at the forefront of new technology, offering traditional laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery as well as advanced, robotically assisted procedures. We have also incorporated some of the newest FDA approved medical devices into our weight loss program, including the Orbera Intra-Gastric Balloon.

Today we have options for every patient suffering from obesity – mild or morbid – and even those who do not wish to undergo surgery to lose weight. Minimally invasive bariatric and general surgery has become ever safer over the years. Today, the average risks for bariatric surgery are no greater than the removal of a gallbladder. And it is research and teaching institutions such as NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island that help develop techniques and processes to make these procedures safer and more effective.
