Weight Management Program at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn

The Weight Management Program at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn offers medical and surgical options to people who need assistance and guidance in their effort to reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Obesity is a serious medical condition that increases a person’s risk of diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, stroke, and certain cancers. Losing weight and keeping it off is not always easy, and for some people, medically supervised nutrition counseling or surgery are the best way to achieve long-lasting results.

The Weight Management Program at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn provides the following treatment options:

  • weight loss surgery, including laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, gastric balloon, and sleeve gastrectomy, that changes the amount of food the stomach can hold, thus reducing cravings and caloric intake
  • nutrition counseling and a support group run by our registered dietitians and psychologist
  • revisional surgery for people whose previous weight loss surgery did not yield the expected results
