      Dr. Nease is awesome! He saved my life! Thanks to him I'm living life again. I'm forever grateful for him!
      in Milton WV |
      Very impressed with the program and care I received. We were educated on procedure, on diet and preventin of dehydration on several occasions. Dr Nease and his staff very caring and helpful. Hospital stay was also very good. The bariatric floor was quiet and very nice. Nurses good at their job and very helpful with anything. Over all very pleased with the whole process from beginning in April 2015 to my surgery date 1/6/16. Nothing was left to chance, we were very informed prior to surgery day

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Nease says...

      Dr. Nease was born in Atlanta, GA and raised in Southern Ohio. He attended The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH where he earned his Bachelor and Medical Degrees. He completed his residency at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL where he received extensive advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgical training. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a member of The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Dr. Nease has served on the Bariatric Review Committee for the Surgical Review Corporation as one of its founding members, the corporation responsible for defining the national standards and certifying "Centers of Excellence" in Bariatric Surgery.

      His interest in bariatric medicine stems from a personal experience with a father who had suffered the health effects and challenges of being obese. After developing a successful bariatric surgical program while in Ohio, he was recruited to Southern California to launch a program in Orange County, CA. Dr. Nease has now returned to his home area where he leads the successful Bariatric Program for Marshall University and Cabell Huntington Hospital and continues to teach other surgeons the advanced laparoscopic technique for bariatric surgery.
