Our weight loss center team is led by well known and highly regarded bariatric surgeons, Rami Lutfi, M.D., and Frederick Tiesenga, M.D.. Both surgeons are drivers of innovation, offering the most advanced weight loss procedures available, like scarless surgery, robotic surgery and gastric plication. Drs. Lufti and Tiesenga also share their expertise by teaching and training other surgeons to perform successful bariatric procedures.

We offer the latest, safest and most effective weight loss procedures, but also believe that surgery is only part of the solution. To make a permanent change, it must be combined with significant lifestyle changes - in your diet, activity level and more.
