Dr. Fox's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fox "Dr. Fox has been in practice since 1986. He went on to become one of the earliest surgeons to offer bariatric surgery using FDA-approved bands. Since then, he has specialized in adjustable gastric banding (also known as LAP-BAND®) and has performed more than 2,000 of these surgeries. His dedication and hard work have led his practice to grow, and Dr. Fox is proud to offer bariatric surgery services to patients throughout the West Richland, Washington area."
