Dr. Glenn Forrester Joins The New Jersey Bariatric Center
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Glenn Forrester joined the New Jersey Bariatric Center. Dr. Forrester will perform weight loss surgery – Gastric Bypass, Lap Band and REALIZE Band – as well as general surgery procedures.
“Dr. Forrester is the newest team member to the growing New Jersey Bariatric Center,” said Dr. Ajay Goyal, founder, New Jersey Bariatric Center, and Director of Bariatric Surgery at Overlook Hospital, Summit, New Jersey. “His fellowship training in Gastric Bypass, Lap Band and REALIZE Band surgery makes him perfectly suited to contribute to our quality patient care and low complication rate. These surgical results stand out as some of the best in New Jersey.”
A graduate of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island with a bachelor’s degree in biology, Dr. Forrester earned his medical degree from St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies. Afterward, he completed a six-year surgical residency at the combined program of Our Lady of Mercy and Lincoln Medical Centers in the Bronx, NY. His fourth year of residency was devoted to clinical research in bariatric surgery under Dr. Julio Teixeira at Montefiore Medical Center. Notably, Dr. Forrester was the recipient of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons Resident Achievement Award for his program in 2007.
Following graduation from his residency, Dr. Forrester gained further clinical experience at an American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery approved fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic Bariatric and General Surgery at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, NY. During his fellowship, Dr. Forrester worked in the emerging field of Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS), as well as was part of one of the first surgical teams to perform this type of surgery through the use of flexible endoscopy.
Dr. Forrester is board certified and a member of the American Society of Metabolic & Bariatric Surgeons (ASMBS), the Medical Society of New York, the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) and the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS).
