The Weight Loss Surgery program at North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) provides North Shore residents with a full range of options for weight loss treatment, including gastric sleeve weight loss procedures.
Gastric sleeve weight loss surgery is an option for patients with clinically severe obesity. In a gastric sleeve weight loss procedure, surgeons remove more than 85 percent of the stomach, leaving only a banana-shaped sleeve connected to the intestines. The gastric sleeve procedure greatly restricts the amount of food a patient can eat, helpful to achieving significant weight loss.
NSMC’s Weight Loss Surgery program has helped hundreds of patients achieve and sustain significant weight loss over the past 10 years. Performing 200 procedures each year, including many gastric sleeve weight loss surgeries, we are the largest and most successful surgical weight loss program on the North Shore.
Our success rate is a result both of the excellence of our surgeons and our pre- and post-operative support programs. Prior to gastric sleeve or any weight loss procedure, patients undergo a thorough evaluation process and are active participants in helping to select the procedure that will help them best reach their goals.
After surgery, we support patients with nutritional counseling, exercise programs, general education, and medically supervised cardiac risk reduction to help them continue and sustain their weight loss in a healthy way.
North Shore residents can seek cardiac ablation surgery, hyperhidrosis surgery and spinal stenosis treatment, or consult with breast cancer surgeons – all at convenient locations close to home or business.
