  • About Me

    Dr. Steven C. Simon has been performing laparoscopic Bariatric surgical procedures for over twelve years. In 1998 he was the founder and Medical Director of one of the first comprehensive Bariatric Surgery programs in the Northeast United States and was one of the first surgeons to begin performing laparoscopic Bariatric surgery in the NE US and trained numerous surgeons now performing Bariatric surgery throughout the U.S.

    He has extensive experience with both primary (Gastric Bypass, Lap Banding, Sleeve Gastrectomy) and revision/conversion Bariatric surgical procedures and has the largest experience of laparoscopic revision procedures in Arizona.

    He is a member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and has practiced extensively with two of the founding members of the Society. He is also a member of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (ISFO), the Society of American Gastro-intestinal Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

    Dr. Simon emphasizes the concept that Bariatric surgery provides a ‘tool’ for patients to use and is a strong advocate of comprehensive care for Bariatric patients and emphasizes pre-operative and nutritional education and post-operative support.

    After graduating with a degree in Music from Bennington College, Dr. Simon received his M.D. degree and surgical training at Harvard Medical School in Boston where he subsequently served on the faculty.
