Hi. My name is Dr. Angela Glasnapp and I'm a bariatric surgeon at Somerset Medical Center.
My practice is New Jersey Bariatric Center and we have three locations in New Jersey. One in Somerville, New Jersey, one in Springfield, and one in Hoboken. Myself and the other three surgeons in our practice are all fellowship trained, and we are all part of a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence program.
There are many reasons why I love what I do. I love the fact that with one operation I can change a person's life drastically. I love that patients will come to me, potentially on five, six, seven medications, and after one operation many times they can stop most, if not, all of them.
On a personal note, my best friend had weight loss surgery over a year ago and has lost over a hundred pounds. I talk to her every day and I see how much happier she is and how every aspect of her life has been positively affected by the surgery.
So, I can whole-heartedly tell my patients that weight loss surgery is a great option to help change their life. Not only will they feel better, look better, but they'll be able to live longer and enjoy their families.

I hope I've answered some of your questions about obesity and weight loss surgery. If you think you might be a candidate for bariatric surgery, take the next step, talk to your doctor, or attend a weight loss surgery educational seminar.
