Dr. Richard Novack is a general surgeon with specialty training in minimally invasive, advanced laparoscopic, and Bariatric Surgery. Essentially, Dr. Novack excels at performing major abdominal surgeries with tiny incisions.

He was born and raised in northern New Jersey, just across the river from New York City, and trained at NYU and the famous/infamous Bellevue Hospitals.
