“I believe that successful weight loss after surgery can only be achieved with comprehensive multi-disciplinary care that continues throughout that patient’s life.
When I operate on a patient, I consider that person my patient for life.”
Lisa Dobruskin, MD

 

Have you tried all the diets, the pills, the exercise without success?

Is your quality of life suffering because of your weight? Is it difficult to walk across a parking lot without becoming short of breath? Do you dread air travel because you barely fit in the seat? Can you no longer play with your children? If so,

You are not alone and help is available. You may be a candidate for bariatric surgery

Once you have decided to take this big, life changing step, the next question is where to turn. Bariatric surgery programs are everywhere. Which one to choose? Here are a few questions you should be asking:

  • What is your Surgeon’s approach to bariatric surgery?
  • Has the Surgeon had specialized Fellowship training in Obesity Surgery?
  • How many Obesity Surgery cases has your Surgeon performed?
  • What kind of support will be available to you, both before and after surgery?

Dr. Lisa Dobruskin completed a Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery and Obesity Surgery at Westchester County Medical Center / New York Medical College. Dr. Dobruskin is a Board Certified Surgeon specializing in Minimally Invasive Obesity Surgery
