I chose this area of specialization not only because I understand how necessary and life saving the weight loss can be for many people, but also because I find this path extremely rewarding, as I am deeply moved by all the positive changes I see in my patients after they undergo bariatric, gastric or other weight loss surgeries. Seeing how much people’s quality of life improves after all that excess weight they have been carrying around for years and struggling to lose on their own literally melts off them within a few months and seeing excitement, happiness and gratitude in their eyes is what drives my passion for what I do. Since 2006, I have performed over 5,000 successful weight loss procedures and developed deep ties within the South Florida community. I put my extensive experience to work every day, allowing me to help my patients to gain control over their weight, achieve longer, healthier, more fulfilled lives, beaming with all the experiences they wanted, but could not have because of their weight. So, don’t let that one, fairly easily correctable thing stop you from living your life your way.
