Services

Our comprehensive services include evaluation, pre-surgical education, and post-surgical support. Depending on your needs and circumstances, your bariatrics team may include physician assistants, psychologists, nutritionists, endocrinologists and nurses. They will provide the guidance, care, and support you need to achieve your weight loss goals.

Our board-certified, fellowship trained, weight loss surgeons are skilled in all types of weight loss procedures and can help you determine which is the right approach for you. In most cases, our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques, which involve smaller incisions and generally result in less pain, fewer complications and faster recovery.

We also offer opportunities to connect with others and to learn about nutrition, exercise and lifestyle topics through pre- and post-bariatric surgery support groups. You do not have to have your bariatric surgery at Duke to participate in a support group.
