SELECTING A SURGEON

Find a weight loss surgeon near you

You’re choosing more than a surgeon; you’re choosing a support team

In addition to selecting the doctor that will perform your bariatric and metabolic procedure, you’re also selecting their staff, which will be helping you on your road to a healthy weight. So, it's important for you to feel comfortable with the entire team. Take the time to find a well-qualified surgeon with a supportive staff near you. And, don’t be afraid to ask questions about their practice and experience, your post-surgery life, and anything else you’re concerned about.
