If you’re struggling with your weight and weight-related health issues, I highly recommend you contact Saratoga Bariatric Surgery and Weight-Loss Program. Their entire program is well-established and you will be in terrific hands with Dr. Baranov, MBSAQIP accredited award-winning surgeon with a reputation of excellence. Expectations are very well laid out during the virtual informational session and at your first appointment with Dr. B. and staff. You will feel very equipped with what steps you need to accomplish before surgery (and after your procedure). My surgical experience (March 2022) was wonderful and without any complications. Nurse Karen was terrific and very thorough with my care and everyone was very friendly at the hospital. Never did I doubt Dr. Baranov’s skill or desire to improve my health during this process. He even called me at home on a Sunday afternoon to see how I was feeling a few days post-op! Dr. B, along with his PA’s and nutritionists are part of my health-care team for the long-term. I know that they are all rooting for my success and health moving forward. It’s great to have the support and encouragement after years of struggling alone with weight loss.
