Medical Weight Loss
Ever wonder why that last diet didn’t work? A recent study tracking the blood sugar levels of 800 people over a week suggests that even if we all ate the same meal, how it’s metabolized would differ from one person to another. The findings demonstrate the power of personalized nutrition in helping people identify which foods can help or hinder their health goals.
When you are looking for the best Diet Plan in New Jersey, Nusbaum Medical Center is the place to go! Our programs are all medically-supervised and we offer a variety of different diets based your individualized goals.
If you want to lose weight and you’re looking for a prescription weight loss medication, you have several choices. Dr. Nusbaum and our medical staff may talk to you about weight loss medications such as Contrave, Belviq, Qsymia, Saxena or Phentermine to name a few. Some of these weight loss medications work very similarly to one another while others have specific uses. Below are some of the more common medications we use, but as we have mentioned, everybody is different and we always tailor our weight loss plans based on each patient, there is no one size fits all here.
Non-Surgical Weight Loss
Obalon Balloon System: The Obalon Balloon System is the first FDA-Approved, Non-surgical swallowable, lightweight balloon system for weight loss. Patients with the Obalon Balloon System combined with diet & exercise lost approximately twice as much weight as those with diet & exercise alone. Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off six months after balloons were removed, when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.
Obera Balloon System: With Orbera®, you learn portion control. The technology and design of the Orbera® balloon helps patients lose up to 3.1X the weight of diet and exercise alone. It is placed temporarily in your stomach for six months and can help patients lose 48% more weight than other FDA-approved gastric balloons.The Orbera gastric balloon is inserted orally through your esophagus and placed directly into your stomach during a quick, non-surgical procedure. There is no need for any incisions, stitches or scars. After the first six months of the weight loss program the stomach balloon is carefully removed and the aftercare program continues.
Surgical Weight Loss
Are you considering gastric sleeve surgery because you’ve tried diets and exercise for years and still have a lot of weight to lose? With a Sleeve Gastrectomy, Dr. Nusbaum removes part of your stomach and joins the remaining portions together to make a new banana-sized stomach or “sleeve.” With just a small sack (about 1/10th the size of your original stomach), you’ll feel full a lot quicker than you did before. You won’t be able to eat as much as you used to, which helps you lose weight. Plus, the surgery removes the part of your stomach that makes a hormone that boosts your appetite.
Gastric Bypass Surgery is a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower “remnant” pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both. Gastric Bypass leads to a marked reduction in the functional volume of the stomach, accompanied by an altered physiological and physical response to food.
A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, commonly called a lap-band, A band, or LAGB, is an inflatable silicone device placed around the top portion of the stomach to treat obesity, intended to decrease food consumption. Adjustable gastric band surgery is an example of bariatric surgery designed for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater—or between 35 and 40 in cases of patients with certain comorbidities that are known to improve with weight loss, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, osteoarthritis, GERD, hypertension (high blood pressure), or metabolic syndrome, among others.
Revision weight loss surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed on patients who have already undergone a form of bariatric surgery, and have either had complications from such surgery or have not successfully achieved significant weight loss results from the initial surgery. Procedures are usually performed laparoscopically, though open surgery may be required if prior bariatric surgery has resulted in extensive scarring.
Gastric Bypass Revision Surgery: Sometimes known as revisional surgery – refers to a weight loss treatment that follows a previous weight loss surgery that did not lead to the desired level of success.
Gastric Sleeve Revision Surgery: In some cases, improper eating (frequent large meals, drinking carbonated beverages, and binge eating) or a failure to completely remove all necessary portions of the stomach, can result in weight regain after gastric sleeve surgery. When significant or lasting weight loss is not achieved in patients who have undergone gastric sleeve surgery, a “re-sleeve” may aid in further weight loss. Using endoscopic techniques, the same as those used during the original procedure, the residual or additional portion of the stomach is removed.
Gastric Band Revision Surgery: Gastric band procedures are safe, popular, and effective ways to lose excess weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle for many people. But sometimes patients elect to have their gastric bands adjusted or removed if they experience a decrease in weight loss or discomfort from the band’s positioning. Adjustments are not uncommon—especially after a significant amount of weight has been lost—and the band’s placement may have to be reconfigured to account for the change. Whatever the reason for a LAP-BAND® or REALIZE® band removal or adjustment, Dr. Nusbaum and the medical staff at Nusbaum Medical Center at the top of their field when it comes to surgical weight loss procedures. Dr. Nusbaum has guided countless patients to healthier lifestyles maintained for the long term.

Guided Habits: Healthy eating education so your child understands what to eat, what foods to combine, and when to eat.
Being a teenager is tough enough on its own, but obese or overweight teens often feel even more depressed and isolated than their peers do. Dr. Nusbaum understands the pressures that overweight teenagers face, and he’s an expert at guiding them through the weight loss journey.
Obesity is not just a weight management problem. It’s a medical condition. This fact often surprises people, especially teenagers, because they may have been shamed by their peers and maybe even other physicians. Dr. Nusbaum and our entire staff at Nusbaum Medical Centers treats obesity as an important medical condition.
Natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps both men and women who are experiencing hormonal deficiencies. As you enter the middle years of your life, you may begin to experience symptoms from low hormone levels, such as weight loss, depression, sleep issues, loss of libido, hot flashes, night sweats, and weight gain. Hormone imbalances stem from a variety of causes. Men may experience hormonal imbalances due to andropause or low testosterone levels. Women may experience hormonal imbalances due to menopause or low levels of estrogen and progesterone. Fortunately, these hormonal imbalances can easily be managed and corrected with personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Testosterone is the male hormone that is responsible for the development of sexual characteristics, sense of well-being, and sexual function. It helps protect against bone loss, heart disease, and depression while increasing the ratio of lean muscle mass to body fat. Correct testosterone levels are essential for the overall health and quality-of-life of men. When men reach 30-years-old, testosterone levels typically begin to drop about 1% per year. There are between 4-5 million American males with hypogonadism (low testosterone). Only 5-10% of them receive testosterone therapy.
SYMPTOMS OF LOW-T
- Decrease in libido (sex drive)
