Obesity is one of the fastest growing diseases amongst adolescents and adults not only in the United States, but in the world. Every day, I meet more people who have come to know the frustration associated with being unable to shed those extra pounds, and the medical problems that come with them. Obesity has taken the health and in some cases, the lives of family and friends.
I have spent the last 10 years of my life helping people overcome obesity and take their lives back. I have personally performed over 2000 Bariatric surgeries in that time, and seen these patients find success and achieve their goals. Like all types of medical therapy, BARIATRIC surgery works best when patients are selected and appropriately prepared for their surgery and the associated lifestyle changes.
There is a strong, successful and healthy person inside each and every patient I treat. My goal is to help every patient find this person within themselves and to find the path to better health, happiness and quality of life.
