Weight-Loss Program

Welcome to the weight-loss (bariatric) program at Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute (BGMC/GVI), proudly serving morbidly obese patients from the United States and Canada.

MBSAQIP SealBGMC/GVI is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®). To earn the MBSAQIP designation, BGMC/GVI met essential criteria to ensure that weight-loss surgery patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success.

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 BGMC/GVI 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 available online and can be taken at any time. We hope to resume in-person seminars soon.
Call (716) 859-4291 with any questions regarding seminars.
