About Bariatric Surgery Specialists

Bariatric surgeons provide surgical procedures for weight loss and obesity treatment that make the stomach smaller. Bariatric surgery helps people lose weight because they feel full soon after starting to eat and end up eating less. Bariatric surgery also helps treat certain hormonal diseases such as diabetes that are related to being overweight or obese.

Make your appointment today with your primary care doctor to determine whether you should be evaluated for bariatric surgery by one of Doral’s highly qualified bariatric surgeons in Brooklyn, N.Y.

WE ACCEPT MEDICAID, MEDICARE, HMOs AND MOST OTHER INSURANCES

Doral’s bariatric specialists keep up to date on treatments for obesity by understanding the human body, learning about all types of diseases, following medical research and studying new techniques and technologies to improve the outcomes of bariatric surgery.

Bariatric surgeons evaluate and treat these conditions (and others):

  • Obesity-related diabetes
  • Obesity-related heart disease
  • Obesity and complications from obesity

What to expect when you see a bariatric surgeon

The bariatric surgeon works hand-in-hand with your primary doctor, as part of the full medical team that manages your condition.
Here are a few of the other types of doctors that might refer you to a bariatric surgeon as part of your treatment:
  • Cardiologist for heart disease related to obesity
  • Endocrinologist for diabetes and other hormonal problems related to obesity
  • Gynecologist for women’s health
  • Orthopedist for problems with your bones and joints

You and your bariatric surgeon will discuss and decide which type of laparoscopic bariatric surgeryis best for you:

  • Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch
  • Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty
  • Gastric bypass (Roux-en-Y)
  • Intragastric balloon
  • Sleeve gastrectomy

Your bariatric surgeon and bariatric team members will manage your care before surgery and will monitor your healing after surgery. You will be meeting with a dietitian and other team members to help you adapt to a new lifestyle after the surgery. Once the surgeon and surgical team are satisfied with your progress, you will return to the care ofyour primary and medical specialty doctors. You also may be referred to a physical therapist or other medical professionals to help your recovery.
