White Plains Hospital’s bariatric surgical center is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
The Hospital’s accredited center offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for severely obese patients. The bariatric surgeons at White Plains Hospital provide expert care in performing the two types of minimally invasive bariatric surgery:
- Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
- Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
In addition to our surgeons, the team includes a bariatric coordinator to help patients navigate through their pre- and post-surgical appointments, while also providing support and answering questions.
Our patients also work with a nutritionist, physical therapist and other specialists committed to their success. Patients benefit from developing meaningful relationships with others on the same journey in our monthly support groups, available to patients following surgery.
