DR. JONATHAN ARANOW is a nationally recognized expert in the field of bariatric surgery, known for his excellent results with weight-loss surgery patients and for his leadership role in securing insurance coverage for these life-changing procedures. “I love being able to help my patients to not only achieve long-term weight loss but also restore their health and quality of life. It’s a thrill to call a patient’s primary care physician and report that in just a few months we’ve cured an individual’s diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.”
Dr. Aranow is adept at all available bariatric surgical techniques including: da Vinci® robotic surgery, gastric bypass, Lap-Band™, Realize Band™ and sleeve gastrectomy. He received his training at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and brought his skills to Connecticut in 1999.
In 2001, Dr. Aranow was instrumental in the creation of the Middlesex Hospital Center for Weight Loss Surgery. The Center has earned the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery’s (ASMBS) “Center of Excellence” designation for its demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes following thousands of bariatric surgery procedures. The designation recognizes not only surgical excellence, but also the nursing and professional excellence of staff members who are involved in the care of bariatric surgery patients. The Middlesex Hospital Center for Weight Loss Surgery is a comprehensive medical, educational and supportive program.
In addition to his bariatric practice, Dr. Aranow continues an active practice in general surgery with special strengths in robotic and minimally invasive surgery, bowel surgery, hernia and cancer procedures.
