  • About Me

    Dr. Spencer Holover received his General Surgery training at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. He then completed a Minimally Invasive Bariatric Fellowship with pioneering Bariatric surgeon, Dr. Phil Schauer at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. While at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Holover held the academic appointment of Clinical Professor of Surgery, performed cutting edge research, gave presentations at major national meetings, and helped train future and actively practicing surgeons. In 2003-2004, while at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Holover perfomed the Sleeve Gastrectomy.  This makes him one of the earliest surgeons in the world to do this operation.  In addition, he published one of the earliest articles ever written on the Sleeve Gastrectomy. The article appeared in a leading laparoscopic-bariatric journal, Surgical Endoscopy, titled “Laparoscopic Sleeve gastrectomy as an initial weight-loss procedure for high-risk patients with morbid obesity”, in April of 2006.

    Dr. Holover has performed over 1200 Laparoscopic Gastric Bypasses, over 1800 Lap-Bands and 400 Sleeve Gastrectomy procedures. He is one of the first and most experienced surgeons on Long Island to perform Single Incision Lap-Band Surgery (SILS). In addition, he has performed over 14,000 surgical endoscopies making him one of the most experienced surgical endoscopists and minimally invasive revision surgeons (ROSE, Stomaphyx, Esophyx, etc.), in the country.

    Dr. Holover has also received the “Patient Choice Award” as one of “New York State’s Favorite Physicians” multiple times as well as having been voted one of the “Most Compassionate Doctors” in the country multiple times.  In addition, he was voted one of The Consumer Council of America’s list of “Top Surgeons in the Country”. Dr. Holover is also a New York State Police Investigators Association Police Surgeon and has been featured as an expert guest on CBS News, KJOY, Telecare and WHPC.
