Dr Garrison performed my bariatric surgery 10 years ago this month. I couldn't be happier with the care I was given. Dr Garrison changed my life and for that I am forever great full. I have called him many time with other medical concerns and he promptly returned my call and answered any questions I had. I was made to feel not like just any patient but as a part of his family and friends.

Bio for Dr. Garrison

December 1, 2015

 

Dr. Jordan M. Garrison is a Board Certified General Surgeon who has specialized in Laparoscopic Bariatric and General Surgery for well over 20 years. 1n 1982, Dr. Garrison received his Medical Degree from the Robert Wood Johnson Medical school in Piscataway, NJ.  Dr. Garrison further completed his Medical and Surgical training at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey(UMDNJ). After this he continued on to complete an ASMBS sponsored Fellowship in Bariatric Surgery in 2008.

After a 3 year stint as the Director of Bariatric Surgery for Christ, Bayonne and Hoboken Hospitals with the Carepoint Health group, Dr. Garrison joined North Jersey Laparoscopic and Bariatric Associates in Teaneck, NJ. in December of 2015.

Dr. Garrison sums up his approach to his surgical practice in one word….Service. That is service to the patient to ensure that they have the optimum experience. This experience should include the opportunity to ask all pertinent questions to their weight loss journey. The patient should have a complete understanding and education of their disease process and will receive thorough information on the risks, benefits, options, potential complications and alternatives in a comprehensive treatment plan. This ensures that an individual designed program will be put in place for each patient. Equal emphasis will be placed on timely and regularly scheduled follow ups.

Dr. Garrison has always been involved with athletics throughout his life and participated in both Football and Boxing while at Lehigh University where he earned his BS degree in Chemistry. In order to keep his association with athletics he currently is a Ringside Physician with the NJ Athletic Control Board and coaches several Pro-Am Basketball teams throughout the year.
