OFFERING HOPE AND A SOLUTION THAT WORKS
"For people who have never struggled with obesity, I suspect it is hard to relate to, but most of my patients have been hopelessly struggling with their obesity for years/decades. I believe that one of the greatest benefits I offer people is hope. Imagine for a moment that you had a problem with which you had been struggling for many years and then someone arrives with a real solution that actually works. It is very powerful to be offering my patients a very real solution that makes such a difference in their lives."
SURGERY.....A CURE FOR DIABETES
"Obesity and obesity-related Diabetes are reaching epidemic proportions in the U.S. - almost 10% of the country is now Diabetic. It is the leading cause of blindness, limb loss and kidney failure in America. Virtually every news report I see still talks about treating diabetes. We need to alter the language to say resolving diabetes because it is now possible. Bariatric Surgery eliminates Type II Diabetes in 80-90% of cases and this is revolutionizing medicine as well as people's health. It's extremely exciting."
WHY I CHOSE BARIATRIC SURGERY
"It is compelling because it is the single surgical procedure that improves, treats and resolves many conditions such as Diabetes, Heart Disease, Sleep Apnea, High Blood Pressure, Reflux Disease, Infertility, Back and Joint Pain just to name a few. Is it satisfying to work with people who refuse to be victims of their obesity or of these diseases."
CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
"My practice has been designated as a Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, as is the hospital in which I perform surgery. I am one of only a handful of such specially designated practices in the state of New Jersey and am gratified to be recognized for giving my patients outstanding care."
AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE
"My team and I have built our practice by listening to each of our patients, understanding their needs, their concerns, and what motivates them and what they want from us. We consider ourselves partners in our patient's health and well being; this partnership begins with the first contact. Our commitment is to provide a five-star experience to each and every patient."
