Hello, I am Dr. Wayne Weiss.

I was educated at New York University Medical School, in New York City. And subsequent to that, I stayed on as a resident in general surgery. When I completed my training, I then performed general surgery and trauma surgery for about 9 years. And then became a bariatric surgeon for the remaining 14 years.

I’ve been with Tri-State Bariatrics since 2008, and its been an honor to be helping patients with their surgical weight loss journey. At this point, I’ve done well over 2000 bariatric surgical procedures. The majority of my procedures are the stapled procedures, including the laparoscopic gastric bypass and the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.

Most recently, I’m most interested in offering the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy because I believe it has a very very high safety rate as well as success rate. And, so, with that in mind, I would welcome anyone who would like to experience an outstanding caring environment within Tri-State Bariatrics, to come to our program and to see me, where I would be very happy to help you achieve your surgical weight loss goal.
