Center of Excellence Award
South Nassau is recognized as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence as designated by the American Society For Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
This is South Nassau's sixth consecutive year to receive the Center of Excellence award. The Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence designation means that South Nassau offers weight-loss surgery with efficacy, efficiency and safety that is matched by fewer than 30 percent of hospitals nationwide that perform bariatric surgery.
South Nassau's Center for Weight and Life Management program is directed by Dr. Rajeev Vohra, a pioneer in laparoscopic weight loss surgery. Among the surgical options offered by the Center are: laparoscopic gastric bypass (also known as Roux-en-Y); the laparoscopic gastric sleeve, which permits weight loss without gastric bypass; laparoscopic banding (LapBand®); and the newest Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS), requiring just one small incision through the navel, rather than five incisions as required by traditional laparoscopic methods.
South Nassau offers monthly education and informational seminars for individuals considering weight loss surgery.
