Our SurgeonsMeet all of our board-certified surgeons.
Douglas R. Ewing, MD, FACS
“I chose to become a laparoscopic specialist because I knew that minimally invasive surgery was at the forefront of surgical innovation. It’s technically challenging for the surgeon and offers improved results and enhanced recovery time for the patient.
“I enjoy both the intellectual and psychological aspects of my interactions with my weight-loss surgery patients. It’s extremely rewarding to see the gratitude expressed by former patients when we are able to help them literally transform their lives through weight loss. Everything changes for them – their health, their social interactions, often even their career. And they are among the most thankful patients you will find. It’s tremendously gratifying for me as a surgeon to play a part in that transformation.
“My goals are to stay at the forefront of surgery, provide leading-edge training and provide patients with the best and most up-to-date care.”
