  • About Me

    "I was fortunate to have the opportunity to pioneer minimally invasive weight-loss surgery in the state of New Jersey. When I saw the weight-loss results that were possible and the potential they had to change people's lives, I knew I wanted to make bariatric surgery the focus of our practice.

    When we developed our program, we knew it was essential to focus on patient education and aftercare support. We've learned that the patients who are most successful for the long term make the decision to have surgery after fully understanding its risks and benefits. Our program is comprehensive, with a lot of emphasis on postoperative nutrition and lifestyle. I believe it is one of the things that has distinguished us within our field.

    Because we have four surgeons on staff, we are able to offer our patients access to medical care 365 days a year. One of us is always available to take a phone call, answer a question or address a concern. Our depth and breadth of experience is another thing our patients really appreciate; they know they are getting the most expert care. And even though we perform a high volume of surgery, we treat each patient with an extraordinary degree of focused, personalized 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.

    I had the sleeve surgery done on 10-12-15 and have not had any problems or pain. In the hospital I received a pneumonia shot when I went home I had more pain from that than the surgery itself. Dr Schmidt and his staff were teriffic.
