Our philosophy

Ninety-nine percent of persons suffering from the worldwide obesity epidemic remain untreated. We can fight back with new technologies and techniques. There are now simpler and safer interventions that can be performed to induce a significant and sustainable weight loss. Paramount to these novel treatments is a sound nutritional and behavioural program with a personal approach.

Our strategy

We employ incisionless, endoscopic approaches to weight loss including intragastric (stomach) balloons and endoscopic suturing. All of the procedures offered do not involve any form of surgery or cutting, they are performed through the mouth.

We are the first center in Manhattan to offer the Obalon balloon* that is swallowed and offer the Orbera balloon as well.  With endoscopic suturing, the procedures are also performed through the mouth (transoral) and do not involve any cutting whatsoever. Most procedures are performed on the same day and do not require a hospital stay.

The nutritional and behavioural program takes advantage of smart mobile technology so that we can follow your progress closely and make ourselves accessible.
