Why Choose Duke
We Become Your Lifelong Partners
As your lifelong partners in this journey, bariatric surgeons are part of a team that supports you before, during, and after your surgery so you can be fully prepared. We want you to meet your goals and live life to its fullest.
We Help You Choose the Weight Loss Surgery That's Right for You
We take many factors into consideration when recommending a procedure to you. We'll explain why we think one procedure will work better for you than another, and we'll help you set realistic weight loss goals.
We Offer New Techniques That Use Smaller Incisions and Minimize Scarring
As leaders in the field of bariatric surgery, we are often among the first in the U.S. to employ new surgical approaches designed to improve outcomes. For example, we’re using magnets, robotic techniques, and even tinier surgical instruments to decrease incision sizes to the point where only one incision may be needed and result in a scar that is almost invisible. Just as important, these new technologies also increase your surgeon's ability to see and maneuver around organs during your surgery.
