Bariatric Surgery

The NYU Program for Surgical Weight Loss is one of most highly regarded and experienced centers of its kind, offering adjustable gastric band, roux-en-y gastric bypass, and biliopancreatic diversion.

Endocrine Surgery

  • 23-hour stay for nearly all thyroid surgeries – simple overnight stay allows patients to recover at home.
  • Minimally Invasive Parathyroidectomy - often performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia with sedation.
  • Intraoperative monitoring of parathyroid hormone levels during all parathyroid operations to help assure successful surgery.
  • Radioguided parathyroid surgery in selected cases (Dr. Karen Hiotis)
  • Laparoscopic Adrenal Surgery (Dr. Leon Pachter)
  • Physician-performed thyroid and parathyroid ultrasonography – available during the initial consultation with ultrasound-guided needle biopsy and immediate interpretation when appropriate (Dr. Keith Heller)
