      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Colquitt says...

      I have been practicing bariatric surgery for 14 years and have performed over 1000 bariatric procedures.  I am happy to see patients who may have moved into the area and are seeking a bariatric surgeon.  

      I practice in a facility certified by the MBSAQIP

      I am a fellow of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery

      Currently I am performing Lap Sleeve Gastrectomy and Robotic Gastric Bypass. 

      I am happy to announce that the ReShape Gastric Balloon has become part of our practice.

      For more information call 865-984-3413

      Dr. Colquitt says...

      I began my experience in Bariatric Surgery in 2002 by performing the first laparoscopic Gastric Bypass in the Knoxville Area.  Later I added the Gastric band and continued the band until 2012.  I felt the the results of the band were poor compared to the gastric sleeve and diid not provide a strong metabolic response.

      The Gastric Sleeve became our primary bariatric procedure in 2010.

      Robotic gastric bypass is our preferred method of performing the gastric bypass because post op pain is less and recovery is faster.

      Our new procedure is the ReShape Gastric Balloon which does not require surgery and is placed endoscopically in our outpatient facility on Papermill Rd, Knoxville, Tn.  My endoscopic skills came from my surgical residency, endoscopic lab in the US Navy, and bariatric endoscopy.
