Morristown Bariatric Surgery Program

Morristown Bariatric Surgery Program

Morristown Medical Center is a large suburban teaching hospital. It is the center of the Atlantic Health Network.


Morristown Medical Center has many large, successful programs including Open Heart and Trauma surgery. It offers a full array of specialists in intensive, medical and surgical sub specialty care. The Bariatric Surgery Program at Morristown Medical Center has been present since 1999 when it was co-founded and developed by Dr Nicholas Bertha among other bariatric surgeons. The program has always been focused specifically on the laparoscopic approach to weight loss surgery (gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, lap band).

The hospital is a “teaching” hospital where residents and interns participate in the coverage and patient care. The bariatric surgery patients are commingled with other surgical patients for their post-operative care on a busy surgical unit. The facility offers Bariatric appropriate equipment throughout and has been designated a “Center of Excellence.”
