Weight Loss Resources

Despite the implied simplicity, losing weight is often an uphill battle. In fact, for many individuals, years of diet and exercise can yield lots of effort and little progress.

At Manhattan Minimally Invasive & Bariatric Surgery Program at Lenox Hill Hospital, it is our mission to help you lose weight as quickly and effectively as possible with assistance from comprehensive weight loss resources. In order to provide additional information on healthy, natural weight loss, we offer guidance from some of the country’s leading obesity, surgery, and nutrition consortiums.
