Getting to Know Dr. Eid
“In recent years, there have been many technological advances in the field of minimally invasive surgery. The challenge is to be able to provide the patients with the most up-to-date care and put their health and well-being at the forefront of our practice.
“I am compelled by the immediate effect that laparoscopic surgery, in particular bariatric surgery, has on a patient’s quality of life. I appreciate the long-term relationship that is built between the doctor and patient and the satisfaction of improving someone’s life.
“My goal is to give my patients the care, attention, support and experience they need throughout their journey and always be available; before, during and long after surgery is completed.”
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.
