Focused on treating the whole patient—mind, body and soul—board-certified surgeon Dr. Michael Nusbaum provides the highest level
of expertise and personalized care. A nationally recognized pioneer in bariatric surgery, he has performed more than 6,000 successful
procedures in the tristate area. “We also foster a lifelong commitment to weight loss by providing nutrition counseling, exercise
physiology and support groups for patients,” he says.
At his Obesity Treatment Centers of New Jersey, patients benefit from both nonsurgical and surgical services, including gastric bypass,
gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric balloon, endoscopic procedures and body contouring. “We have many more nonsurgical solutions
to o;er now,” Dr. Nusbaum says. “I recommend them for those beginning to investigate weight loss programs or not qualified for surgery.”
Dr. Nusbaum established Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s bariatric surgery program 18 years ago and performed the first laparoscopic
gastric bypass and banding procedures there. He is also director of bariatric surgery and bariatric section chief of the department of surgery
at Morristown Medical Center and surgical director at the Metabolic Medicine and Weight Control Center at Morristown Medical Center.
A New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor every year since 2007, Dr. Nusbaum has earned two patents for surgical instruments. He has appeared on
NBC’s TODAY show, CBS 92. 3 FM and Health Radio, as well as in Marie Claire magazine and Ladies’ Home Journal as an expert on weight
control and the obesity epidemic.
