In Loving Memory of Steven Gitt, MD, FACS

August 2, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that the OH Team shares with you that our longtime friend Dr. Steven Gitt has passed away.

Described by his patients as a caring, compassionate, and understanding surgeon, Dr. Steven Gitt was the founder and Medical Director of North Valley Plastic Surgery where he specialized in post-bariatric procedures including body lifts, tummy tucks, neck lifts, and more.  Dr. Gitt was dedicated to helping his patients finish their weight loss journey and to helping them achieve their body contouring goals.

Dr. Gitt reached out to the ObesityHelp (OH) community in many ways.  He would often help to answer questions on the message boards or those that were emailed in.  He wrote articles for OH Magazine and was always willing to share his expertise and insights.  We sincerely appreciated his time and dedication to helping others and his support of our community.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends, patients, and staff members at this very sad and difficult time.

Dr. Philpott and the team at North Valley Plastic Surgery will continue to provide the high-quality patient care they are known for.
