New Jersey Bariatric Center Opens East Brunswick Office
Our Fourth Location Offers Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Gastric Balloon and Medical Weight Loss Services to Residents of Central and Southern New Jersey
SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (November 2, 2017) – New Jersey Bariatric Center® surgeons and staff are pleased to announce the expansion of the medical and surgical weight loss practice with the opening of its fourth office in East Brunswick, New Jersey. The expansion will bring more options to Central Jersey residents who are struggling to find long-term, sustainable weight loss solutions, says Ajay Goyal, MD, FACS, owner and director of New Jersey Bariatric Center®.
The new office, located at 192 Summerhill Road in East Brunswick between Rues Lane and Racetrack Road, will offer the same services as New Jersey Bariatric Center’s other locations, providing the most advanced, evidence-based medical and surgical weight loss treatments, including gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, gastric balloon, FDA-approved weight loss medications and personalized nutrition counseling. The team includes board-certified bariatric and general surgeons, registered dietitians, psychologists and support staff, all of whom specialize in the treatment of obesity. New Jersey Bariatric Center® has three additional offices in Springfield, Union County, Somerville, Somerset County and Hoboken, Hudson County.
“We have been seeing patients for some time who drive all the way from Middlesex and Monmouth counties and even as far away as the Trenton area,” said Dr. Goyal. “This new location will offer these patients a more convenient location and also allow us to bring our philosophy that obesity is a disease that needs to be treated in the same way that we treat any other disease – with the best interventions that we have to offer.”
The new East Brunswick office features ample parking, a bright waiting area and comfortable consultation rooms, and is in close proximity to various shopping areas, including Brunswick Square Mall and Summerhill Square. It is a short drive from the intersection of Route 18 and Route 1 in New Brunswick and one a few miles from the New Jersey Turnpike’s Exit 9.
According to The State of Obesity annual report released by Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 27.4 percent of New Jerseyans are obese, an increase of about 5 percentage points from 10 years ago.
“The obesity rate is continuing to rise in New Jersey and around the country,” said Dr. Goyal. “Although weight loss surgery has become more common, there are still many people who think of it as a last resort instead of what it is: a proven intervention that can end obesity and improve or resolve a host of serious illnesses associated with obesity.”
“The majority of the patients who come to the office tell me their only regret is not having had the surgery sooner,” Dr. Goyal added. “Most importantly, patients see improvements in type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and fatty liver disease. But the thing that stands out the most often for patients is the quality of life improvements. Being able to go down a slide with your young child or shop for clothing that makes you feel great in an easily accessible retail store are additional benefits that should not be undervalued.”
