Vadim Gritsus, M.D., is a board-certified surgeon with primary interest and expertise in minimally invasive bariatric surgery. He was the first surgeon to introduce laparoscopic gastric bypass and laparoscopic adjustable gastric band procedures at The Valley Hospital. His office is in Paramus.
His philosophy in the treatment of obesity is to provide the least traumatic approach to surgical procedures. “Earlier, traditionally high-risk techniques precluded patients with multiple medical problems to have weight loss surgery,” says Dr. Gritsus. “Current advances in minimally invasive surgery have made this lifesaving operation available to virtually anyone.
“Obesity is a multifactorial medical problem that requires a comprehensive approach of many specialists,” adds Dr. Gritsus. “To achieve the best possible result in the treatment of this debilitating condition, the patients have to rely on carefully developed and individualized support.” The goal of Dr. Gritsus’ practice is to provide surgical weight loss solutions to patients with a wide range of co-morbidities, along with nutritional support and counseling, behavioral modification strategies and exercise.
