BARIATRIC SURGEON

I love my job, because I get to help people reclaim the health and life they deserve.

I’ve been doing bariatric surgery since 1995, and I’ve been on the forefront as surgery has become steadily safer and more effective. I’m now working on robotic techniques for bariatric surgery so that our patients can improve even more quickly and more reliably. I believe that in the next 10 years we’ll have improved diagnostic testing for obesity so that we can provide treatment that is targeted to the particular aspects of each patient’s obesity disease, leading to revolutionary improvements in access to care and outcomes.

I’ve personally performed over 3,500 bariatric operations, recently focused on Sleeve and Gastric Bypass procedures at a pace of 6-12 operations each week.

I’m excited about our new Gastric Balloon option, which I think is going provide effective treatment for a large new group of patients.
