Bariatric surgery is a collective term for the variety of weight loss surgeries currently available. At Lenox Hill Hospital we specialize in minimally invasive surgery for weight loss.  Traditionally, bariatric surgery was done by making an incision large enough to expose the internal organs that were to be operated on during the procedure. However, new minimally invasive surgical techniques have revolutionized many procedures by enabling surgeons to reach the same internal organs through  small incisions . For some patients, an endoscopic procedure with no-incisions is possible. There are several benefits to minimally invasive surgery, including:

  • Fewer wound complications
  • Reduced hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery period
  • Less pain
  • Decreased need for pain medication
  • Invisible incision point
  • Less blood loss
