Considering Weight Loss Surgery?
The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends weight loss surgery and has endorsed weight loss surgery as the only effective means of inducing significant weight loss for the vast majority of severely obese patients. Studies have shown that diet and exercise programs alone are not effective and have a high failure rate compared to weight loss surgery.
"Weight loss surgery is a proven tool which is shown to dramatically improve or eliminate the health related problems such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea in the overwhelming majority of patients." Dr. Edward Pucci
"Since the 1991 endorsement of gastric bypass surgery there have been significant enhancements to the procedure especially the ability to perform it through Minimally Invasive techniques like laparoscopic surgery. Additionally, gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy offer patients two great additional options in minimally invasive weight loss surgery" Dr. Richard Pucci
"We also have one of the best support systems for our patients. Our multi-disciplinary approach and comprehensive support, both pre-operative and post-operative, provides patients the tools for succes."
Dr. Anthony Pucci

Obesity is a complex, multi-factorial chronic disease involving environmental, genetic, metabolic, and behavioral components. Obesity is now the second leading cause of preventable death in the U.S. after smoking. Here is where we come in. Our surgeons have been performing surgery and caring for thousands of patients, many referred by family and friends.
