Gastric Bypass New York City
Gastric bypass surgery can be an inroad to better overall health and lower weight. It is a very serious step to take against obesity, and Dr. Elliot Goodman and Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City have the expertise and experience it takes to help you make the right decision for your health and your future.
A gastric bypass is a physical change in the design of the stomach; a smaller stomach pouch is created and the amount of food it takes before the body becomes full is greatly limited. The pouch is connected to the intestines and the remaining volume of the stomach is bypassed and unused, as well as a short length of the intestines. Although effective in significant weight reduction, diet and exercise are required to improve overall health and maintain the results that come with surgical intervention.
Formerly the Chief of Bariatric Surgery at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, Dr. Goodman is now a part of the Medical staff at Beth Israel Medical Center as well as being on the Surgical Faculty at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is an active member of the American Society of Bariatric Surgery and lectures throughout the country on weight loss surgery. At Beth Israel, Dr. Goodman educates people before and after surgery because he realizes that gastric bypass and other bariatric procedures represent the first in a series of lifelong changes. As such, the services he and the other surgeons at Beth Israel Medical Center go beyond the operating room.
Dr. Goodman is professionally involved with the following fields:
