About Bariatric and Metabolic Specialists

We recognize that bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity. Patients suffering from obesity related diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and joint pain are excellent candidates for the surgical treatment of obesity. This is why the team at Bariatric and Metabolic Specialists offers more procedures than any other group in the Midwest.

When you choose a surgeon at Bariatric and Metabolic Specialists, you are choosing from the most experienced team of bariatric surgeons in the region. We are home to surgeons who have a combined 65 years of experience doing weight loss surgical procedures; surgeons who hold more than 65 patents for surgical inventions, many of which allow for fewer incisions, less scaring and a faster recovery; surgeons who are invited to speak nationally and internationally on advanced surgical treatment; surgeons who sit on national committees and educate their peers; and surgeons who have written text book chapters on surgical techniques for bariatric procedures.

Our multi-disciplinary team will work closely with you on every step of this incredible journey. Patients interested in weight loss surgery, non-surgical procedures, medical weight loss with our board-certified medical bariatrician, or patients who have previously had weight loss surgery and are experiencing weight regain, will find the team at Bariatric and Metabolic Specialists here to help you!

Call our office today to schedule an appointment. If you have questions regarding pricing or your specific bariatric insurance benefits, our team will be happy to verify your benefits and insurance requirements so that you are informed prior to your appointment.
