  • About Me

    Dr. Heider and the Lake Norman facility recently were awarded the Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence (BSCOE) by The American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The BSCOE designation enables patients to distinguish specific providers who have met the requirements for delivering high-quality perioperative and long-term follow-up care from those who do not.

    Dr. Heider received his medical degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and completed his surgery training at University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill. While at UNC, he participated in a variety of advanced minimally invasive and laparoscopic procedures, including laparoscopic gastric bypass, gastrectomy and esophageal surgery.

    Dr. Heider is a certified LAP-BAND Total Care ChampionTMand board certified by the American Board of Surgery. He has also published numerous articles and completed extensive research in the area of advanced laparoscopic surgery.

    He was the first Charlotte-area surgeon to perform single-incision, “scarless” bariatric surgery and is one of only a few surgeons in the nation with the advanced training to perform the 90-minute procedure.
