Fellows of this program will be able to independently evaluate, diagnose and plan operative strategy for complex bariatric patients. They will perform complex laparoscopic and robotic assisted procedures. Fellows will gain experience with primary bariatric procedures such as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, RYGB, Duodenal Switch, complex revisional procedures such as Band to Sleeve, RYGB or DS, Sleeve to RYGB or DS, RYGB to DS. They are also trained in non-surgical weight loss procedures, including the latest in endoscopic procedures such as Gastric Balloon, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty, Endoscopic pouch revision. Fellows are also involved in complex foregut cases such as Hellar Myotomies, paraesophageal hernias, nissen fundoplication. Fellows are trained in advanced endoscopy, as well as Manometry and pH Bravo readings.
Fellows are intimately involved in the preoperative and postoperative care of the patient through clinics, call and surgery. Fellows cover bariatric call but also take two days of paid general surgery call per month. No trauma call.
Additionally, they will develop an understanding of how to manage and perform clinical and basic science research. There is an expectation they present at national meetings. Each fellow will attend at least one national meeting per year plus any available fellows' courses. Fellows run bariatric journal club and work to create one support group per year.
We are interested in fellows who want to learn primary and complex bariatric surgery in a program that does a large amount of anastamotic cases as well. We feel very strongly that our fellows will be experienced in the whole realm of bariatric surgery when they finish.
We invite you to learn more about our program and look forward to having you on an interview visit.
