  • About Me

    “I chose to become a laparoscopic specialist because I knew that minimally invasive surgery was at the forefront of surgical innovation. It’s technically challenging for the surgeon and offers improved results and enhanced recovery time for the patient.

    “I enjoy both the intellectual and psychological aspects of my interactions with my weight-loss surgery patients. It’s extremely rewarding to see the gratitude expressed by former patients when we are able to help them literally transform their lives through weight loss. Everything changes for them – their health, their social interactions, often even their career. And they are among the most thankful patients you will find. It’s tremendously gratifying for me as a surgeon to play a part in that transformation.

    “My goals are to stay at the forefront of surgery, provide leading-edge training and provide patients with the best and most up-to-date care.”

    Dr. Hans Schmidt and Dr. Douglas Ewing were the first Bariatric Surgeons in the state of New Jersey to perform the Orbera Intra Gastric Balloon!

    Advanced Laparoscopic Associates is not only one of the first weight loss practices to be offering this balloon weight loss procedure in the tri-state area, but they participated in the FDA clinical trials for this new treatment and have therefore experienced the full potential of this program.
