In medical malpractice and other legal cases involving bariatric surgery (aka “weight loss surgery”), Dr. Conason is qualified to speak from a psychological perspective on the impact of procedures and a patient’s suitability for bariatric surgery.
From 2007-2018, Dr. Conason maintained a research position at the New York Obesity Nutrition Research Center at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital (formerly St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital), in affiliation with Columbia University. She did postdoctoral training as part of an interdisciplinary team with the Center for Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. During this time she conducted psychological evaluations for patients undergoing bariatric surgery, worked with the team to create treatment plans, and attended staff meetings and high risk case consultations with the surgery team. Following her postdoctoral work, Dr. Conason continued to conduct pre-surgical evaluations in her private practice for several years and has completed hundreds of evaluations.
Dr. Conaon’s research focused on psychological outcomes following WLS. Her groundbreaking research on substance use following bariatric surgery was one of the first studies to document an increased risk of alcohol use following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery; now a widely-recognized phenomenon. Her research was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Surgery and has been cited hundreds of times in peer reviewed articles. She has also published on sexual functioning following bariatric surgery and the increased risk of suicide and self-injury following WLS. Dr. Conason has been a frequent invited speaker and presenter at meetings of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), The Obesity Society (TOS), and Obesity Week.
