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.

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.
