About Bariatric Surgery
Obesity is a very personal problem. For over a decade, the weight loss surgery team at Roger Williams has successfully utilized surgery to help people deal with their weight problem. Our team, led by Dr. Dieter Pohl, has performed more than 3,000 weight loss surgeries and has been a "Bariatric Center of Excellence" since 2005.
Every person is different and needs personalized care. That's why we spend a lot of time with each person to understand their needs, evaluate their health conditions in detail, educate them about their options, get them ready for surgery, perform the surgery, guide the surgical aftercare, keep them engaged in a lifelong relationship with us to improve and maintain their health and happiness.

Most people falsely believe that weight-loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a simple one-step process. They think weight-loss surgeries consist of going to the hospital, having the surgery, then shedding weight immediately without changing their lifestyle. These beliefs are false—the success of any weight-loss surgery depends highly on the after care. If you are considering weight-loss surgery, you may be wondering: what must I do after weight-loss surgery to ensure successful weight loss.
