    Bariatric Surgery with Dr. Jonathan Aranow

    After recognizing the absence of surgical treatment options for obesity in Connecticut, Dr. Aranow founded the Middlesex Health Center for Weight Loss Surgery in 2001. Since then, he has performed more than 4,000 weight loss procedures with some of the best and safest results in the country. He offers patients minimally-invasive, robotic-assisted surgery with the use of the da Vinci® surgical robot. Utilizing robotic assisted techniques, Dr. Aranow performs Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass, and the Duodenal Switch (SADI and traditional DS). Utilizing advanced minimally invasive techniques, he also provides treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernias, and other gastrointestinal diseases.

    Having performed bariatric surgery for more than 20 years, Dr. Aranow has been a part of the evolution of bariatric surgery and has served as an outspoken advocate for those struggling with morbid obesity. He has achieved national recognition for his leadership role in securing insurance coverage for weight loss surgery patients as well as for the excellent results he has seen in his surgical patients. He has campaigned in the state and federal legislatures for expansion of insurance coverage for these life-saving surgeries.
