What is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who struggle with severe obesity. Obesity causes many other seemingly unrelated complications such as cardiovascular disease, joint pain, symptoms of malnutrition, lack of energy, lack of sex drive, and even infertility.

Bariatric surgeons specialize in advanced laparoscopic surgeries and robotic surgery. Their multi-disciplinary approach allows for a unique, comprehensive, and holistic approach to bariatric surgical care. This includes a support program that begins prior to surgery and continues for life!

If you’re looking to have a surgical weight loss procedure, please research your options such as the gastric bypass and duodenal switch and seek a physician that seeks to educate you. If you’ve had previous weight loss surgery and have experienced side effects of vomiting, nausea, weight regain, and stomach pain, you could qualify for revision weight loss surgery.

Our bariatric specialists have extensive experience in the latest weight loss programs and advanced surgical procedures.


Although they are experts in their field and have been called upon to serve in leadership and teaching positions at top medical schools, their primary focus remains patient care. Our bariatric specialists are professional, confident physicians who will make themselves your partner on this journey to a better, healthier you. They are compassionate, kind, caring and will take time to talk to you about your condition in order to find the best possible treatment. Their mission is to provide patients with a safe and comfortable environment and get a full patient history to provide the most accurate and effective treatment options for each individual patient. Our specialists take a conservative approach to bariatric procedures, and only recommend surgery after other treatments have been attempted.  Their bedside manner is like no other.

If you are tired of your obesity severely affecting your life, seek the help of a bariatric specialist today! Our specialists welcome new patients and accept most major medical insurance plans.
