Meet Our Surgeons

Meet the surgeons who know how to get you back to
living life without limits.

One of the most important considerations when looking into bariatric surgery is choosing who you will trust to guide you through this life-changing experience.  Training, skill, and experience almost go without saying. You will want to make sure the surgeon you select knows what he’s doing. That he has extensive experience –and a history of success in bariatric surgery.
