Getting to Know Dr. Trivedi
“I always knew I wanted to be a doctor and began pursuing my training right after high school. As I was completing my surgical residency, laparoscopic surgery was just coming to the forefront. I recognized immediately that it was the wave of the future and that I wanted to be on the leading edge of minimally invasive procedures.
What I find most rewarding about bariatric surgery is that it allows me to develop lifelong relationships with my patients. Observing the change in a person’s health from this one intervention is amazing – and the change is almost immediate. It impacts one’s health and personality and changes the way a person is perceived. It’s gratifying to be a part of that.
I think a lot of people are fearful about weight-loss surgery because they have received misinformation. That’s why we focus on educating our prospective patients right from the start. We want them to know that weight loss surgery is a good and safe option in the hands of the right surgeon.”
For additional information, all prospective patients are invited to attend a free educational seminar.
Seminars are a great source of information about the procedure you are considering, and they allow you to meet the surgeons as well as ask any questions you may have. You may also have the opportunity to meet some post-operative patients.
