Dr. Jonathan Aranow received his training at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and brought his skills to Connecticut in 1999. In 2001 he founded the Middlesex Hospital Center for Bariatric Surgery after recognizing the absence of bariatric surgeons in Connecticut at that time. Since then, he has performed more than 1600 weight loss procedures with some of the best and safest results in the country. He is now offering patients a minimally-invasive, robotic assisted gastric bypass surgery with the use of the da Vinci® surgical robot.
As an outspoken advocate for the morbidly obese individual, Dr. Jonathan Aranow has achieved national recognition for his leadership role in securing insurance coverage for weight loss surgery patients as well as for the superb results he has seen in his surgical patients. He notes that following weight loss procedures his patients routinely experience dramatic improvements in health and self-esteem. Because of the known benefits of these procedures, Dr. Aranow has campaigned in the state and federal legislatures for expansion of insurance coverage for these life-saving surgeries.
Dr. Aranow is adept at all available surgical techniques including gastric bypass, LapBand™, Realize Band™, sleeve gastrectomy, and minimally invasive procedures. His exceptional outcomes and comprehensive multidisciplinary program, which includes dietary and behavioral counseling, have received national recognition and have earned certification as a "Center of Excellence" from the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. In addition to his bariatric practice, Dr. Aranow continues an active practice in general surgery with special strengths in minimally invasive surgery, bowel surgery, hernia, and cancer operations.
