    Bariatric Surgery in California with Dr. Quebbemann

    As a bariatric surgeon, I know that my surgical skills are important, and the surgery needs to go well to maximize my patients’ chance for success. This is my responsibility, and I take it very seriously. I also know that without my patients’ full intent to succeed, there is no chance of achieving long-term success. My patients and I are partners in this process, and I need them to be in touch with why they are doing this, and we need to have a plan for achieving success. We are a team, my patients and I, and we need to work together. I can do my part flawlessly, but without their effort, we won’t succeed. -Dr. Quebbemann

    Dr. Quebbemann strongly believes that a patient’s success after bariatric surgery is only maximized when state-of-the-art surgery is combined with a comprehensive education and support program. In over 20 years, he has helped more than 7,000 patients successfully reshape their lives.
