PRACTICE OVERVIEW Our practice, opened in 2001, is recognized as a Center of Excellence by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

What differentiates our work from others is an approach that is not just about surgery and healing wounds, but also about thorough preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care. Weight loss surgery cannot be looked at as a standard surgery. It’s a life-changing procedure. The relationships our surgeons develop with patients are much longer term and much more intense.
