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.
Across the country, there are approximately 750 bariatric surgery programs accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. For someone considering weight loss surgery, the questions are: where do I go for my bariatric surgery? How do I choose a surgeon?
