HISTORY OF OTCNJ

At the Obesity Treatment Centers of New Jersey, we offer both surgical and non-surgical options for weight loss. The Laparoscopic Bariatric Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center was started by Dr. Nusbaum back in 2000. In 2002, Dr. Michael Nusbaum started the Obesity and Weight Management Center of The Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center. In conjunction, we are able to offer Nutritionists, Dietitians, Metabolic Specialists, Cooking Classes, Exercise Physiologists, Massage Therapy as well as surgical options such as Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass and Laparoscopic Gastric Banding procedures.  As of January 2008, we are pleased to offer the "REALIZE" gastric banding in addition to the "LAP-BAND" gastric banding system.

We have support group meetings every two weeks and have meetings specifically for Pre-op patients, Post-op patients, Long Term (more than one year) Post-op patients, and now a group specifically for Lap Band patients. We encourage all our patients to make an informed decision prior to choosing a Surgeon. You must investigate not only your surgeon but also the hospital he/she works out of. To that end, we encourage all our patients or prospective patients to visit www.obesityhelp.com Here you can read patient testimonials about both the hospital and the surgeon. You can also register as a patient of ours by visiting our page on Obesity Help. In conjunction with the Obesity and Weight Management Center of The Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center and Saint Barnabas Medical Center, our surgeons have created a State of the Art program. The facilities and staff at Saint Barnabas Medical Center are among the finest in the country and can provide you with unparalleled care and support.

FELLOW OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR METABOLIC AND BARIATRIC SURGERY

As of May of 2008, Dr. Nusbaum was named a Fellow of the American Society For Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.  He was among the FIRST group in the country for whom this honor was bestowed.  As a Fellow of our society, his duty is to uphold the high standards, quality of care and represent the honor of the ASMBS.

BARIATRIC SURGERY PROGRAM AT MORRISTOWN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

After starting the program in St. Barnabas back in 2000, Dr. Nusbaum was asked to revamp and restart the program at Morristown Memorial.  In 2008, Morristown Memorial Hospital asked Dr. Nusbaum to help them create a state of the art Weight Loss and Bariatric Program.  The concept was to combine the "Duke Weight Loss Clinic" with the "Canyon Ranch Spa" and create the "Mayo Clinic" of Weight Loss in the NY TriState area.  The result is: The Metabolic Medicine and Weight Control Center at Morristown Memorial (The Weight & Wellness Center of Atlantic Health).  This center provides options for those who need to lose 10lbs or 210lbs or more.  As the Surgical Director of the Weight Control Center, Dr. Nusbaum encourages all patients to take advantage of the outstanding services this new center has to offer.  Please contact our offices or MMH for more information.

Morristown Memorial has been awarded the 2010 Bariatric Center of Excellence by Health Grades.  Only two bariatric programs in NJ were granted this honor.

Morritown Memorial has also been designated as a Center of Excellence by the American College of Surgeons.
