Stony Brook Southampton Hospital
The Bariatric and Metabolic Weight Loss Center celebrated the grand opening on June 16, 2016 of its new location at 23 S. Howell Avenue, Centereach. Director Aurora Pryor, MD, performed the ribbon cutting joined by Stony Brook supporters, facility staff, former bariatric patients and Brookhaven councilwoman Valerie Cartright, who presented Dr. Pryor with a proclamation of congratulations.
With the opening of the new facility and a dedicated team of experts on site, patients can access appointments with interdisciplinary providers all under one roof: surgeons, nurse practitioners, phyisician assistant, psychologist, dietitians, and exercise specialist.
The Centereach facility is also the home of the Division of Bariatric, Foregut and Advanced GI Surgery offering evaluation and treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) including LINX®, achalasia, hernia, and procedures and surgeries for the esophagus, stomach, gall bladder, pancreas and intestine.
More recently, the Bariatric and Metabolic Weight Loss Center has added office locations to include Commack, Southampton, Westhampton Beach, and Holbrook. Surgeries are available at both Stony Brook University Hospital and Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.
