Your day.

As a Surgeon in Bariatric Medicine you’ll work with 3 other Surgeons to provide top-notch care and patient experience. Throughout the day you’ll collaborate with several Advanced Practice Providers, Psychologists, RNs and Dieticians.

  • Your hours will be Mon-Fri 8am-5pm
  • You’ll be on call 1:2 for bariatric patients and some trauma general surgery shifts 1-2 times/month. Please note that the 1:2 call may be more like 1:3-1:4 with the help of 2 other general surgeons.


Your experience.

We hire people, not words on paper. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:

  • MD or DO degree from a fully accredited medical or osteopathic school of medicine
