She refined her laparoscopic surgery skills at New York University Winthrop Hospital with fellowship training in advanced gastrointestinal and bariatric surgery, before returning to New Jersey to practice.

     Dr. Arumugam has experience with all types of bariatric surgery and is passionate about treating medical problems and improving quality of life in those with obesity.
