Check the Internet
Since there are so many bariatric doctors out there, you may want to start by logging on to the Internet. A
quick search engine search may yield many results in your area. Start off by typing in the type of surgery and the
city, for example,
- “michigan bariatric surgery”
- “center for obesity surgery in Gainesville”
- “golden isle center for obesity surgery”
- “morbid obesity surgery kansas city”
- “long island bariatric surgery”
- “bariatric obesity surgery Missouri”
- “morbid obesity surgery orange county”
You may use various combinations of keywords for the best results and to use quotation marks (") to yield more
accurate results. Check carefully on all the links that appear on the results page and make a list of all the
doctors that you find in your area. In addition, you can also look for recommendations from places such as the
Federation International Obesity surgery for more information on surgeons in your area.
Once you have narrowed down your choices and found some surgery centers in your location, you can start looking
at individual surgeons. It will be wise to note all the vital information available online about those surgeons
that you like. If you know anyone who has had the procedure done, you can also get personal recommendations.
Furthermore, you may even be able to find seminars and information workshops in your area that will help you get
an idea of where to go for these surgeries. Many people who have had bariatric surgery are more than happy to share
their experiences with you.
