Hans J. Schmidt, MD, FACS
“I was fortunate to have the opportunity to pioneer minimally invasive weight loss surgery in the state of New Jersey. When I saw the weight loss results that were possible and the potential they had to change people’s lives, I knew I wanted to make bariatric surgery the focus of our practice.”
After weight loss surgery performed by Dr. Kraft, Eamonn experienced an incredible transformation!
Thanks to Advanced Laparoscopic Associates and Dr. Hans Schmidt for weight loss surgery. It saved my life. I was overweight with high blood pressure and diabetes 2. Now I am where I need to be at 55.
I went to see Dr. Eid back in 2017 and let me tell you it was the best decision I’ve every made. The whole entire staff was extremely amazing. I was 31yrs old and 278lbs at that time. I was super young with so many health issue. I felt like it was time for a change and change I did. Dr. Eid and his staff gave me my life back and I am forever grateful.
When I started my journey I was pushing 300lbs. I was having trouble breathing, sleeping, working and even exercising. I would start to sweat for no apparent reason. I decided to talk to my wife and my doctor about what I could do to try to lose the weight. It was suggested that I should think about weight loss surgery. It was not one of the easiest decisions to make but, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would like to thank Dr. Ewing and his staff at Hackensack Hospital and everyone at the Advance Laparoscopic Associates office. I would also like to thank Nadia, Jennifer and everyone in the Bariatric Support Group. Without y’all, I don’t think I would be where I am at today. Once again, thank you all!
Josefina lost 95 lbs with gastric sleeve surgery.
Dr. Trivedi was my surgeon and I am beyond grateful to have a second chance at life.
Dr. Schmidt was my surgeon in 2019. Here I am 4 years later and maintaining well!!! 100lbs gone forever!!! The office, the hospital and of course Dr. Schmidt were all fantastic through the entire process!!! Thank you for changing my life!
If you’re hesitating, just jump in and do the [free, virtual] seminar.. you’ll thank yourself for it! I am short of 6 weeks post-op with my procedure done by Dr. Schmidt. Everything went super smoothly and I am forever grateful to him and the staff at ALA for this new journey I am on.
My first visit to Dr. Trivedi was in 2016 when I wanted to remove my lap band which was put in by another doctor in NYC. I wanted to remove band and have the sleeve done on the same day. He said NO that's not what I do. First I will remove band, wait a few months to get your scar tissue to heal. Finally after the insurance approval and all that comes before surgery, I had my surgery November of 2017. From a size 16 to size 6. Surgery is a tool, you must listen to your body adjust to changes. Do some type of exercise and adjust your life style to reach your goal.
Ivette has had an amazing transformation so far, losing 112 lbs since her weight loss surgery with Dr. Kraft!
