Additional Information:
Brian Bollo, MD, earned his medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical College in Brooklyn and completed a five-year residency in general surgery at Staten Island University Hospital, where he served as chief resident in his final year. He went on for fellowship training in minimally invasive surgery at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, where he studied with Dr. George Ferzli, who is considered a pioneer in laparoscopic surgery and who holds patents on a number of laparoscopic surgical instruments.

Dr. Bollo performs three bariatric (weight-loss) procedures: roux en y gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding surgery, and gastric sleeve surgery. He describes the gastric sleeve procedure, which many insurance companies are not yet reimbursing, as “another tool for surgical weight loss. For some patients, the gastric sleeve is the final procedure,” he explains. “For patients who are morbidly obese, the gastric sleeve surgery may be a bridge to gastric bypass surgery, allowing them to lose weight prior to having the bypass performed.”
