Care Philosophy

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.Read more

Dr. Pirrello's Care Philosophy

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.  

Dr. Pirrello says...

While a well performed surgery is important for patients to be successful, it is only a part of the solution.  The Bariatric Center at St. Francis employees a comprehensive weight management program that stresses good nutrition, regular exercise and permanent lifestyle change as key components to long-term success.  

I have performed over 1200 gastric bypass procedures, over 1000 sleeves and over 500 adjustable gastric banding procedures.  Regular visits to the nutritionist and regular post op follow up with the Bariatric Center Team help to keep patients on the right track and on the road to success.  Unfortunately, many Bariatric programs fall short in these areas, and the patients ultimately pay the price.  Our team goes the extra mile to set our patients up for success, and follows them long-term to make sure they stay on the right course.
