(YorkPedia Editorial):- New York City, New York Jan 6, 2022 ( – An established bariatric surgeon, Dr. Fredericks has had extensive experience in providing surgical and non-surgical methods in medical weight loss. He is an ardent proponent of combining healthy lifestyle choices with the highest quality medical care to put a stop to the obesity epidemic, person by person.


The doctor has helped hundreds of his surgical patients successfully lose significant weight, get their lives back and reduce their co-morbid conditions, like diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.  


Long-term weight loss through Standard of Care procedures (Roux en Y Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Lap Band, and Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch) is largely achieved by surgical interventions that effectively alter gut hormone levels that are responsible for hunger and satiety, thereby leading to a new hormonal weight set point. He has also observed that surgical interventions are only a tool for achieving successful weight loss and if that tool is not managed effectively – through education and appetite control solutions – even surgical interventions can lose their efficacy in the long term.  


Over the past decade, the obesity rate has continued to increase, from 30 to 42% of the adult population.  Dr. Fredericks has now uniquely positioned himself to battle this chronic disease with new and advanced methods.  He now manages both the surgical weight regain patients and the obese population, non surgically with the new FDA-approved weight loss medications and nutrition.


For those patients that have experienced weight regain after weight loss surgery or those who are obese and looking for alternatives to weight loss surgical intervention, Dr. Fredericks is seeing patients at his Omega Weight Loss Center, 228 South Orange Ave, South Orange, New Jersey.


Dr. Fredericks graduated from Temple University School of Medicine and completed his residency at the Graduate/Temple University Hospital. He did a fellowship in bariatric surgery at New York University studying under renowned surgeons Dr. George Fielding and Dr. Christine Ren-Fielding with a particular focus on the adjustable gastric banding technique in bariatric surgery. He also worked directly for Allergan, the originators of the Lap-Band, and Ethicon, the originators of the Realize Band.
