Why Choose Us
At RWJBarnabas Health, we realize that weight loss is a journey, not a
destination. We understand that the struggle with obesity is often complex.
Obesity can be influenced by family history, physiological, environmental,
socioeconomic and psychological factors. When other methods have not been
successful, surgical treatment may be an option. Effective, successful
weight loss requires life-long changes and commitment. That is why we
created the New Jersey Bariatric & Metabolic Institute.
Our Centers offer a comprehensive approach to weight loss and bariatric
surgery. In addition to doctors and surgeons, our weight loss team includes
nutritionists, exercise physiologists (site Specific), clinical psychologists,
bariatric coordinator and support groups designed to help you through
your journey. We make a long-term commitment to our patients health by
offering a comprehensive treatment plan, beginning with education and
lasting through recovery and post-surgical support. Our New Patient Seminars
offer those considering bariatric surgery an informative, convenient,
and understandng environment in which to learn about surgical options.
Our surgeons and staff are some of the most exerienced in the state, and
we have outstanding success rates. Our post-surgical care and support
result in an ongoing relationship to promote a long-term successful outcome
for each patient.
