A seven-time New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor, Dr. Nicholas Bertha is a board-certified surgeon who specializes exclusively in advanced lapa-
roscopy, bariatrics and endoluminal surgery. In practice since 1996, he has completed nearly 7,000 weight loss procedures, including gastric

Dr. Bertha provides comprehensive, personalized care with compassion and the utmost integrity. “A decision to proceed with life-changing
bariatric surgery is never simple,” he says. “To ensure success, find a surgeon with deep experience, technical skill and empathy—and insist on
close postoperative care.”

as director of bariatric surgery at both Saint Peter’s University Hospital and Saint Clare’s Hospital. He is also medical director of Florham Park
