Bariatric Program

Welcome to the Bariatric program at Buffalo General Medical Center, proudly serving morbidly obese patients from the United States and Canada.

MBSAQIP SealKaleida Health at Buffalo General Hospital is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®). To earn the MBSAQIP designation, Kaleida Health at Buffalo General Hospital met essential criteria to ensure that bariatric surgical 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 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.
