The Bay - Can The Weight Be Over?



Obesity is a national epidemic.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 97 million adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. That  represents more than fifty percent of the adult population. Of this group, 11 million  adults suffer from severe obesity.

The new Institute for Weight Loss at Raritan Bay Medical Center provides solutions and support for obese  individuals seeking surgical weight loss who have been unable to lose weight through conventional  dieting, exercise or weightloss medication.

Many of these individuals have struggled with their weight all their lives. They worry about being around to  enjoy their kids and grand-kids. Having to deal with their own discomfort and frustration has led many area  residents to seek help from Dr. Ayotunde Adeyeri, M.D., medical director of the Institute for Weight Loss at  Raritan Bay Medical Center.

A board certified, fellowship trained, bariatric surgeon, Dr. Adeyeri specializes in Roux-en-Y gastric  bypass, adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and other minimally-invasive laparoscopic  surgical procedures.

“These procedures are done through small incisions,” says Dr. Adeyeri. “Patients can return to work and resume heavy lifting and strenuous activity, inmost cases, in about two weeks. Those who are able to do light duty at work may go back even sooner.”

People seeking obesity surgery must undergo medical and psychological evaluations to determine if they  are candidates for surgery, and then participate in support groups following their surgery to ensure  successful, long-term weight loss.

Dr. Adeyeri and his staff at the Institute for Weight Loss at Raritan Bay Medical Center always put the  patient first. “Our patients love us because we take the time to explain,” says Dr. Adeyeri. "We show them  how the surgeries are performed. We make sure that they really understand the care and support they will  receive – before, during and after their procedure."

Dr. Adeyeri derives satisfaction from helping people overcome their obesity. “We watch lives transform as  our patients start discovering a whole new world and the possibilities that life offers,” says Dr. Adeyeri.  “Our focus at the Institute for Weight Loss at Raritan Bay Medical Center is to ensure that patients have  their surgeries and then stay motivated, eat healthily, change undesired patterns, exercise, and more than  anything…enjoy a new lease on life.”
