Adolescent Bariatric Surgery
Childhood and adolescent obesity is an epidemic in the United States. Rates of diabetes, heart disease, and other obesity-related conditions have been on the rise for several years now, largely due to obesity forming habits in childhood that carry on into adulthood.
For children, between the ages of 16 and 18, that are already dealing with the challenges of obesity and the effects, Saint Clare’s is pleased to offer a multi-disciplinary management team and bariatric surgery program accredited as adolescent centers by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery to assist teens and their families in living a healthier life and reducing the diseases caused by obesity.
To speak with the bariatric coordinator: 973-989-3047
Our team is comprised of physicians, nutritionists and counselors that understand the effects, both mental and physical of obesity and will work with the teen and their family on a solution that best fits their personal situation.
