Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Barnes "I have the best career in the world. I get to perform surgery that has a high success rate at curing diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, reflux, joint pain, high cholesterol and a host of other diseases caused by morbid obesity. I perform Laparoscopic RNY gastric bypass, Lap sleeve gastrectomy, Lap Band, and revisions for previous weight loss surgeries. I also know how hard it is for patients with prior surgery looking for a surgeon and I take all comers."
