At the Obesity Treatment Centers of New Jersey, we offer both surgical and non-surgical options for medical weight loss. The Laparoscopic Bariatric Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center was started by Dr. Nusbaum back in 1998 and was Chief of Bariatric Surgery there from 1998-2009. In 2002, Dr. Michael Nusbaum started the Obesity and Weight Management Center of The Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center. In 2008 he was asked to take over the Bariatric Program at Morristown Medical Center were he became Chief of Bariatric Surgery and Surgical Director of the Metabolic Medicine and Weight Control Center. In conjunction, we are able to offer Nutritionists, Dietitians, Metabolic Specialists, Cooking Classes, Exercise Physiologists, Massage Therapy as well as surgical options such as Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve and Laparoscopic Gastric Banding procedures using the LAP-BAND gastric banding system. We are also pleased to offer the non-surgical option of Gastric Balloons.

We have support group meetings every two weeks and have meetings specifically for Pre-op patients, Post-op patients, Long Term (more than one year) Post-op patients, and now a group specifically for Lap-Band surgery patients and one for gastric balloon patients. We encourage all our patients to make an informed decision prior to choosing a bariatric surgeon. You must investigate not only your bariatric surgeon but also the hospital he/she works out of. To that end, we encourage all our patients or prospective patients to visit http://www.obesityhelp.com. Here you can read patient testimonials about both the hospital and the bariatric surgeon. You can also register as a patient of ours by visiting our page on Obesity Help. In conjunction with the Obesity and Weight Management Center of Morristown Medical Center, our surgeons have created a State of the Art program. The facilities and staff at MorristownMedical Center are among the finest in the country and can provide you with unparalleled care and support. We serve the communities of Clifton, Livingston, Morristown, Union, West Orange and surrounding areas.

Afraid of Surgery? Not an issue. We offer Gastric Balloons that require NO surgery!
