Dr. Nicholas Bertha is extremely delighted to be honored again by his colleagues as a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor, for the ninth year
in a row. “It is more gratifying than ever, especially in this era of alignment, consolidation and the collectivization of medicine,” he says.
At the NJ Bariatric Institute, Dr. Bertha specializes in advanced laparoscopy, bariatrics and endoluminal surgery. “We believe that part
of what makes our patient care successful is the experience of collaborating with so many colleagues from orthopedics, endocrinology,
gynecology, family practice and internal medicine,” he says. “Our practice philosophy is simple: streamlined, excellent care delivered in a
straightforward, patient-friendly format. Do the right thing, do it safely and do it well.” Proud to have accumulated more than 7,000 alumni
who have successfully completed weight loss procedures, Dr. Bertha is equally proud that even with a group that large, because of electronic tools the practice can, and does, still deliver care one patient at a time.
A fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, where he
serves on the patient safety committee, Dr. Bertha is director of bariatric surgery at Saint Peter’s University Hospital. He is also medical
director of the Florham Park Surgery Center and serves his community as a member of the Morris Township Board of Health.
