Our Team & Locations

In choosing to have surgery with us, you will benefit from a comprehensive program staffed by an expert team of Board-certified surgeons, advanced nurse practitioners and registered dietitians. Surgery is one element of our comprehensive program; as important are pre-surgery education programs and lifelong follow-up and support in helping you after surgery. Our team will partner with you in achieving your weight-loss goals and improving your quality of life.
