comprehensive approach where we use a large team of clinicians to treat the
patient in a global fashion every patient is an individual we understand
that each patient story is different and we use this approach to individualize

and two other bariatric weight loss surgeons as well as a full host of
nurses exercise physiologist dietitians and psychologists we use this approach
to treat the entire metabolic picture of a patient to make sure that all of the
