Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yoo "My clinical interests include minimally invasive and open approaches to advanced upper gastrointestinal (GI) surgery with a focus on weight loss surgery and minimally invasive general surgery with a specialization in complex hernias. I currently serve as co-director of the Duke Hernia Center at Duke Regional Hospital. I started at Duke in 2002 as a general surgery resident. I graduated in 2009 and went on to become a fellow in the Duke Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery Program. I joined the surgical staff in 2010. I am a Virginian at heart as it is where I grew up before moving to North Carolina to start my career at Duke. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids."

Dr Yoo did s great job. The procedure was very quick and painless for me. I was in surgery for 5-6 hours, out cold, so it was a flash for me :) Everything went amazing! I lost 100 pounds 8 months latter. He is very nice and his team is also great! I wish I could email him to thank him!!!

Dr. Yoo did an amazing job with my gastric bypass in February of 2015. Currently, I have lost 110 lbs. I have not had any complications. I would highly recommend him to anyone contemplating weight loss surgery!
