How to Choose a Weight Loss Surgeon

One of the most important decisions that a prospective bariatric patient can make, is choosing which weight loss surgeon is best for them. The key is to understand that there is no “best” surgeon for everyone. Rather, the surgeon that best addresses the patient’s needs is probably the right surgeon. Choosing a surgeon should be a thorough and thoughtful process and the particulars of each program can vary significantly; even if the procedures are largely the same.


Ultimately choosing a surgeon requires time, patience and research. Attend seminars and even drop by a support group or two. You will be happy that you spent the time making the right decision.
