New Location and Added Services at Valley’s Center for Metabolic and Weight-Loss Surgery

The Valley Hospital’s Center for Metabolic and Weight-Loss Surgery recently marked the opening of its new office with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The new location will include expanded services such as medically managed weight-loss for patients who are not candidates for weight-loss surgery, but who are struggling to lose weight on their own. This approach includes diet, exercise, and medication. 

The Center for Metabolic and Weight-Loss Surgery will continue to provide a multidisciplinary approach to bariatric surgery and weight-loss management, offering patients personalized surgical options and a full spectrum of support services. The team at the Center works closely with psychologists, exercise physiologists, wellness coaches, and other specialists to ensure its patients obtain the highest level of care and optimized success.  

In addition to Melissa Bagloo, M.D., Medical Director, Center for Metabolic and Weight-Loss Surgery, the patient care team includes a bariatric nutritionist, a nurse practitioner, and a dedicated office staff to help patients throughout their weight-loss journey.

The Center is located at 947 Linwood Avenue in Ridgewood, NJ. To schedule a consultation, to register for one of the Center’s free monthly weight-loss seminars, or for more information, please visit or call 201-251-3480.
