Our Team

The bariatric surgeons at Chattanooga Bariatrics offer different types of weight loss procedures including the gastric sleeve, gastric band, gastric bypass, and new nonsurgical weight loss balloon procedures. We are dedicated to a comprehensive treatment program to help patients with obesity lose weight and keep it off. In addition to losing weight, bariatric surgery assists some patients in reducing life-threatening co-morbidities such as high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis and reflux disease.

We understand that losing weight and maintaining the weight loss over an extended period of time is difficult, but we also recognize that each individual patient has special needs. Understanding those needs allows us to promote the strong motivation and long-term commitment that are crucial to modifying eating behaviors. Our staff recognizes that altering lifetime habits requires education, emotional support and commitment. We will help you to make a decision that will modify your eating behavior and assist you in making the necessary lifestyle changes that can lead you to better health.
