Bariatric/Comprehensive Weight Management
Welcome to the Bariatric Division at Buffalo General Medical Center, proudly serving morbidly obese patients from the United States and Canada. The Bariatric Division 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.
The Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), an organization dedicated to pursuing surgical excellence, formulates and establishes the rigorous standards with which the Bariatric Division and other Centers of Excellence must comply, thoroughly inspects and evaluates each candidate for designation. Upon review, the SRC recommends approval of designation for those physicians and facilities whose practices and outcomes meet the stringent demands set forth by SRC for ASMBS. The Bariatric team is skilled, compassionate and ready to serve patients’ weight loss needs. For more information, click on the links to the left. Also, feel free to read the Comprehensive Weight Loss & Bariatric Surgery brochure (PDF).
Weight loss surgery seminars are open to the public and held at Buffalo General bi-weekly on Wednesdays at noon.
Call (716) 859-2067 for the date of the next seminar.
