The N.E.W. Program -Surgical Weight Loss Long Beach, CA
The N.E.W. Program at Community Hospital of Long Beach emphasizes a truly multidisciplinary approach to weight-loss surgery. Providing the best surgical services possible is simply one aspect of our comprehensive program. The four key components for the highest level of long-term patient success include:
- Patient Education providing important knowledge about how bariatric surgery works and enabling each patient to become an integral part of the weight loss team.
- A Thorough Medical Evaluation to ensure maximum patient safety at the time of the operation.
- State-of-the-Art Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery providing the least post-operative pain and the fastest patient recovery.
- Long-Term Follow-up and Support enabling patients to achieve their maximum long-term success.
Our multidisciplinary team includes experts in bariatric medicine, nutrition, exercise, clinical psychology, and laparoscopic surgery. Of course, the primary consideration in any bariatric surgery program is the expertise and ability of the surgeon and you'll receive a tremendous benefit from expertly performed laparoscopic surgery. As established experts in minimally invasive surgery, we perform nearly all bariatric procedures using laparoscopic surgery, with most patients remaining in the hospital only one day, and able to return to work after one week.
The surgeons at The N.E.W. Program have experience with well over2000 laparoscopic bariatric surgery patients and perform nearly all weight loss surgery using the laparoscopic method. We have performed minimally invasive bariatric surgery on patients ranging from 200 pounds to well over 600 pounds. We have an amazing track record with minimal complications. These surgical results stand out as some of the best in the country.
The comprehensive support offered at our center is one of the most extensive Aftercare Programs in America. John Jolliffe, the well-known talk show host on “Issues of Life” as well as our expert in behavioral management for weight loss, directs our Lifestyle Management Workshop series. This one-of-a-kind program is an exciting high-energy seminar series designed to help each individual patient achieve their own unique lifestyle goals. Another unique service is that our comprehensive nutritional and medical follow-up is directed by Dr. Tracy Siegfried and Dr. Karen Garner, both Board Certifiedin Internal Medicine and specializing in the management of patients who have undergone weight-loss surgery.
The N.E.W. Program is dedicated to achieving the best surgical results for every patient and the highest level of patient satisfaction. Thank you for visiting this website. We look forward to helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
My experience at Community Hospital of Long Beach, when I stayed there in March of 2008 for my gastric bypass, was incredibly positive. My doctors at the NEW Program in Newport Beach, CA, Justin Braverman, MD and Brian Quebbeman, MD, had told me it would be terrific, and they were right. During my night there I quite literally had to ring every fifteen minutes for help with going to the bathroom and taking walks. Not only did someone from the nurse's station come quickly every single time, but with care that was really personal and loving, and they never seemed exasperated with me for calling so often. I live a block away from Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, and I also took a look at the bariatric surgery program there. I am so happy I chose to travel the distance, to stay at your hospital, and to have been under the care of the NEW Program. I believe it made all the difference to my success at losing 100 pounds in just over seven months.-Samuel B., Consultant
