Welcome to the Bariatric program at Buffalo General Medical Center, proudly serving morbidly obese patients from the United States and Canada.

Kaleida Health at Buffalo General Hospital is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®). To earn the MBSAQIP designation, Kaleida Health at Buffalo General Hospital met essential criteria to ensure that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success.

Our team of skilled physicians were the first group in WNY to perform sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic bypass and provide lifelong follow-up with patients.

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York has recognized Buffalo General Medical Center as one of the first healthcare facilities in the nation to receive a Blue Distinction® Center+ designation in the area of bariatric surgery by the Blue Distinction® Centers for Specialty Care program.
