Our Surgical Weight Loss Team

At the Association of South Bay Surgeons, we've harnessed the collaborative power of multiple specialists and sub specialists into one comprehensive team of expert surgeons. For more than 10 years, we've provided quality care for our patients while paving the way for future medical innovations. Since the practice was formed in 1995, our surgeons have performed countless procedures. You can feel confident that our physicians have the experience needed to provide patients with the best possible care. And now, many of these surgeries can be performed using minimally-invasive techniques. This benefits patients in many ways - smaller scars, less bleeding, less pain and quicker recovery.
