Weight Loss Surgery
Healthier Weight, Healthier Life
If you think you’re overweight or obese, or your health care provider has advised you to lose a significant amount of weight, the specialists at South Nassau’s Weight and Life Management Center are here to help. We specialize in bariatric, or weight loss, surgery and using the latest procedures, we’ve helped over 4,500 patients with dramatic weight loss. Our patients average up to 80 percent loss of excess weight — and they keep the weight off for years after surgery. In part because of results like this, we’ve been named a Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
Key to the success of patients at South Nassau’s Weight and Life Management Center is our team of physicians, nurses, exercise therapists, dietitians, psychologists and more who specialize in weight loss. We’re dedicated to helping you find success in getting to a healthier weight for a healthier life — for you, your family and your loved ones.
Together, we offer a comprehensive program — not simply a surgical procedure. And our specialists are experienced in a number of weight loss surgeries. So if you choose surgery, we can help you identify which procedure best fits your goals.
If surgery is your choice, we’ll discuss with you the many types of weight loss procedures that our specialists offer, so we can help you choose the one that fits your goals best.
