Bariatric Program

Welcome to the Bariatric program at Buffalo General Medical Center, proudly serving morbidly obese patients from the United States and Canada. The Bariatric program is recognized as a designated American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Center of Excellence, meaning all aspects of the program’s surgical processes were closely examined and data on health outcomes was collected during a site inspection.

Our program is fully accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program and is comprised of the largest team of Laparoscopic Fellowship trained surgeons in WNY who are ready to serve patients’ weight loss needs.

Our team of skilled physicians were the first group in WNY to perform sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic bypass and provide lifelong follow-up with patients.

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York has recognized Buffalo General Medical Center as one of the first healthcare facilities in the nation to receive a Blue Distinction® Center+ designation in the area of bariatric surgery by the Blue Distinction® Centers for Specialty Care program.

Weight loss surgery seminars are open to the public and held at Buffalo General bi-weekly on Thursdays at noon.
Call (716) 859-2067 for the date of the next seminar.
