Are you interested in scheduling a consultation with one of our bariatric surgeons? First, we ask that you complete an Information Session.
We have regularly scheduled sessions at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Howard County General and online. These sessions discuss the procedures that we offer, the risks and benefits of bariatric surgery, and insurance considerations. After you successfully complete your Information Session, we will collect your contact information and a member of our staff will contact you to schedule your appointment.
To select an Information Session to attend, click the "Information Sessions" link in our left-side menu. If you have any questions, please call our office at the number listed below.
A Patient's Perspective on Bariatric Surgery
Learn first-hand from a patient how bariatric surgery improved her health and quality of life.
Improving Diabetes through Lifestyle and Surgery Study (IDeaLS)
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of losing weight through:
- Lifestyle changes (diet and exercise);
- Surgery with gastric banding; or
- Gastric bypass surgery, on improving diabetes.
This study is designed for patients who have mild to moderate obesity (BMI 30‐40 kg/m2) and have Type 2 Diabetes. Patients must have Employee Health Plan (EHP) insurance to take part in the study. Patients will have an equal chance of being randomized to one of the three treatment arms and will undergo detailed testing of their diabetes and other medical conditions. A total of 45 patients will be enrolled in the study protocol.
