Bariatric Surgery

Dr. John Mecenas of Surgical Associates of Ithaca established the Bariatric (weight-loss) Program at Cayuga Medical Center and serves as its medical director. He and Dr. Brian Bollo perform three types of bariatric surgery: roux-en y gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding (LAP-BAND) surgery, and gastric sleeve surgery.

Since the local weight-loss surgery program began in 2002, Dr. Mecenas and Dr. Bollo have helped hundreds of people lose weight and regain their health. Our weight-loss surgery patients are well supported before and after surgery by a comprehensive program of education, long-term patient follow-up, and ongoing support-group participation. We are affiliated with the Cayuga Center for Healthy Living, which provides valuable professional guidance for our patients about proper nutrition, lifestyle modification, stress management, exercise, and diabetes education.
