  • (1888PressRelease) November 03, 2011 - New York City, NY - With over 25 million Americans currently suffering from diabetes and two million more being diagnosed every year, the New York weight loss surgery specialist at Northern Westchester Hospital found a proven treatment method for at least some instances of the disease. New York weight loss surgeon, Dr. Mitchell Roslin, is the Chief Bariatric Surgeon at Northern Westchester Hospital and has seen dramatic reductions in the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes among his patients who have undergone bariatric procedures, such as gastric bypass or lap band surgery.

    In New York City, gastric bypass surgery is gaining an increasingly impressive reputation for not only helping overweight individuals shed pounds, but for relieving them of the more severe complications which arise from obesity, especially Type 2 diabetes. "At Northern Westchester Hospital, we're seeing excellent results with these procedures. Not only do they offer a solution to obesity, but they also address the serious effects of obesity on the body, such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea and diabetes," Dr. Roslin says. After closely observing his patients before and after their surgeries, he has seen multiple cases in which patients have been able to greatly reduce or cut out their diabetes medications altogether.

    Also garnering attention in New York, lap band surgery is an alternative to gastric bypass where the stomach is restricted using a band. Northern Westchester Hospital sees its bariatric center as a leader in these laparoscopic, or minimally invasive, procedures and hopes that new studies regarding bariatric surgery and Type 2 diabetes symptoms will encourage more overweight patients to consider their weight loss options.

    With the numerous minimally invasive surgeries available today, Dr. Roslin is hopeful that more people will begin to look at the striking statistics regarding weight loss and the cure for Type 2 Diabetes. Dr. Roslin said, "Physicians need to know that these surgical options are available to their overweight patients."
