About Bariatric Surgery

Program director Dieter Pohl speaks on the methods, expectations, and long-term benefits of weight loss surgery at Roger Williams.

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 MBSAQIP-Accredited Center 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.
