Hundreds of individuals have now been cared for by the bariatric team at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens, and while each patient experience is unique, they all share certain important features.
Patients have discovered a compassionate and devoted group of
professionals whose focus is on the special needs of the bariatric
population. Every aspect of the pre-operative, intra-operative and
post-operative program reflects a desire to make the patient experience
as comfortable and as stress-free as possible.
And, as would be expected, patients are enjoying consistent and dramatic weight loss together with remarkable improvement in co-morbid conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. The great majority has found its need for medications substantially reduced or eliminated, with many being fully cured of diabetes and high blood pressure.
Also of importance is the common experience of lifestyle change.
Patients universally report marked improvement in their energy levels
and new-found capabilities in exercise and recreational activities.
