Morbid Obesity Surgery Manhattan, NYC
Morbid obesity surgery is a recommended treatment for those over 100 lbs overweight or with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 40 or higher with no success from other weight control methods. Morbid obesity surgery specialist, Dr. Elliot Goodman is an Assistant Professor of Surgery Albert Einstein College of Medicine and a Board Certified general surgeon has had great results working with people with this special problem. He, his partners and staff employ a diversified attack on this serious debilitating condition.
Surgery alone won’t reverse morbid obesity. Dr. Goodman and his staff aid the people who come to him both before and after the surgery in making the changes in their lives to make it a healthier lifestyle. During the recovery period from surgery Dr. Goodman goes the extra mile in making his surgery patients more comfortable with the use of cutting edge devices like the ON-Q pain pump. The On-Q pump provides significantly better pain relief than narcotics after surgery and reduces the patient’s need for narcotics – helping patients feel better faster and get back to their normal activities more quickly.
Dr. Goodman joined the medical staff of Beth Israel Medical Center to expand its Bariatric surgery program in January 2004. Prior to moving to Beth Israel, Dr Goodman was on the staff of Montefiore Medical Center and the faculty of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY for over four years. Before this, he was on the faculty of the New Jersey Medical School and was the co-director of the University Institute for the Surgery of Morbid Obesity in Newark, NJ.
