How Do I Start?

If you've spent years struggling with obesity and resulting health issues,
it may be time to consider one of our bariatric options. 

A Comprehensive Program

At Saratoga Bariatric Surgery and Weight-Loss Program, our MBSAQIP accredited surgeon has extensive experience in minimally invasive bariatric surgery, including sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass and gastric balloon placement.

The "comprehensive" designation -- the highest available from MBSAQIP -- signifies that Saratoga Bariatric Surgery & Weight Loss Center meets rigorous standards for bariatric care. The designation also indicates that the program provides the resources necessary to meet the needs of bariatric patients, both pre- and post-operatively.

Weight Loss
  • Surgical
    We perform three different bariatric surgery procedures.
  • Non-Surgical
    If you're not a candidate or not ready for surgical procedures.
  • Nutritional
    Our comprehensive nutritional services help patients lay the foundation for a lifetime of healthy food choices.
Bariatric Surgical Options

Dr. Baranov performs the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric balloon procedures.

These are all "restrictive" type weight-loss operations that work similarly, but there are some important differences. The key point to know about each are discussed on their respective pages.


Bariatric Non-Surgical Options

If you are not a candidate for weight-loss surgery or are not ready to try this approach, you have other options—and we're here to help.

We offer a variety of non-surgical weight-loss tools, including supportive one-on-one nutrition counseling and exercise options, as well as the Orbera Intergastric Balloon procedure.


Nutritional Services

All of our registered dietitians are certified by NY State and all are experts in developing customized plans based on science, research, and proven strategies.

They are there to provide lifelong, non-judgmental support and the extra motivation that can make all the difference to help you meet your needs and goals.

Before and After Success Stories
We are proud of every one of our successes! We know that our successes are a team effort. After their bariatric surgery,
our patients have been well-prepared to do their part to lose weight and keep it off.
