What Differentiates Our Bariatric Program?
What differentiates our work from others is an approach that is not just about surgery and healing wounds, but also about thorough preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care. Weight loss surgery cannot be looked at as a standard surgery. It’s a life-changing procedure. The relationships our surgeons develop with patients are much longer term and much more intense.
