We understand what it means to struggle with your weight. Obesity surgery offers the only proven long-term, effective treatment for morbid obesity. At our center, we have helped many people like you achieve a permanent solution to obesity. Since your decision to have surgery for obesity is life-transforming, we require that all prospective patients make an appointment to attend one of our weekly Obesity Surgery Seminar's prior to making an appointment to see any of our staff. The rationale behind this is to educate our patients regarding the various surgical procedures we have to offer as well as discuss the various dietary requirements that go along with the various surgical procedures, thus "painting" a completed picture as to the expectations before, during and after surgery. We have found that attending our seminar has helped guide our patients in choosing the appropriate weight-loss surgery for them.

If you would like to go ahead and schedule an appointment to attend one of our complimentary Obesity Surgery Seminars, please call 212.305.4000 and ask for weight loss surgery seminars or sign up for one of our seminars online.

Please print out the PDF's of the new patient forms below, provide the requested information and bring the completed forms to your first appointment.
