Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
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
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.
