Telephone:  212-254-3570

The new Gramercy Surgery Center was founded in 2006, to provide surgeons with friendly, high-quality, and professional setting to treat their patients. Gramercy Surgery Center is a fully licensed Article 28 facility. Gramercy Surgery Center is also Medicare-certified which means we have to abide not only to state guidelines, but also the federal regulations governing free-standing surgery centers. We can assure our doctors and patients the highest quality in care, service and satisfaction. Our facility offers patients and their families a comfortable, private, and friendly environment, quite the opposite to the disturbing emergency and trauma situations that patients might encounter in a hospital.

Since the opening of Gramercy Surgery Center, we continue to grow and are becoming the most comprehensive Surgery Center in the Tri-State area with programs like Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Podiatry and Urology.

Gramercy Surgery Center is proud to be the first ambulatory surgery center in New York State to offer bariatric Lap-Band Surgery to fight the obesity epidemic we face as a nation and especially in the New York area. This procedure is a safe and successful measure for people trying to lose excessive weight. As Dr. Shawn Garber, the Associate Medical Director for Bariatric and General Surgery at Gramercy Surgery Center, states, “Lap-Band is an effective tool in helping people take off the weight but it is not the cure. Calories in and Calories out along with the Lap-Band procedure will lead to a success and assist people in their determination to lead a healthier lifestyle.”

All studies consistently prove that with the weight loss, many other conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol all improve greatly. Gramercy Surgery Center is pleased to bring this safe and effective ambulatory procedure to the New York City community.
