Welcome

We are North Carolina’s weight-loss pioneers

If you’re thinking about weight-loss surgery, you’ve come to the right place. East Carolina University is a leader in weight-loss surgery. We helped develop the procedure known around the world as the Greenville Gastric Bypass and offer the experience you need make positive changes in your life.

With our program, you will have a full team of weight-loss professionals working for your success. While you prepare for your procedure and as you adjust to your new life, the staff of ECU Bariatric Surgery will be with you along the way.

For more than 30 years we have performed this surgery. Our experience and research allow us to offer the best and newest technologies, methods and recovery guidelines. That means better results for you.

Our surgeons are faculty of the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. Your care is provided by doctors who are teaching tomorrow’s doctors. Our experience and excellence assure you of the best care available.

While no one can predict your results, most patients safely lose the weight they need. There are other health benefits, such as a clinically proven improvement in diabetes.

Our team includes surgeons, registered nurses, dietitians, nutritionists and counselors. We are recognized as a Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

We hope you will spend some time on this website, which has much of the information to help you make a decision about weight-loss surgery. You may watch our presentation here. Or, you may call for a consultation appointment.
