“I decided to specialize in bariatric surgery because this surgery has a big impact on patients’ quality of life. Each person has different goals, whether to regain their quality of life or mobility, stop taking medication, or watch their grandchildren grow up. My job is to properly communicate information about their options and work with patients to help them achieve their goals. Patients are extremely grateful to have bariatric surgery.”
