The Valley Hospital's Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery offers Bergen County residents exceptional, comprehensive care — minus the drive to Manhattan for consultation, surgery and follow-up.

Our surgeons evaluate each prospective patient in a detailed consultation. Then, the most appropriate surgical option is chosen: gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, or adjustable gastric banding. All of these procedures are performed laparoscopically through tiny incisions in the abdomen.

The Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery is led by director and surgeon Melissa Bagloo, M.D.

According to Dr. Bagloo, minimally invasive bariatric surgery significantly reduces incision size and recovery time. "We use a laparoscopic technique, inserting a fiber optic instrument through a small incision – barely the size of a thumbnail. This technique reduces blood loss, the chance of wound complications, and overall discomfort. The technique also reduces the amount of time patients stay in the hospital.”

 

 

The Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery is located at 579 Franklin Turnpike in Ridgewood. Call 201-251-3480 for more information.
