The surgeons at Crestwood Medical Center specialize in weight-loss surgery and have cumulatively performed more than 3,000 procedures. Their focus is helping patients become healthy through lifestyle changes, with surgery as the first step toward a new life.
The goal for patients is not only weight-loss, but also reducing or eliminating health problems associated with obesity. These include chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and lipid disorders.
All three surgeons also specialize in minimally-invasive—also called laparoscopic—procedures, which typically result in less scarring and anesthesia as well as a faster recovery (compared to traditional surgery).
