    Dr. Fielding Understands The Struggle With Obesity

    You will have the unique opportunity to have a caring and compassionate surgeon who truly understands the very personal fight against obesity and obesity-related illnesses. In 1999, Dr. Fielding’s struggle with obesity motivated him to undergo the Lap-Band procedure. His personal experience and perspective allow him the opportunity to better help his patients.

    Obesity is a disease, and fighting it is a lifelong fight, that will never go away for me. I weigh less now than I did in high school with the help of the Lap-Band. I’ve lost 120 lbs and kept it off. I was on 12 medications for obesity-related diseases and am now on three-one BP med, aspirin, and a Statin, which is sensible for anyone my age. -George Fielding, MD

    I felt extremely comfortable in Dr. Fielding's hands. There haven't been many recent reviews for this doctor, and I really have literally no idea why. The entire process to learn about surgery, get approved by insurance, and then recover successfully is beautifully curated More...

    Dr. Fielding performed my surgery, he was not my doctor initially. I'm very happy he was the one to do the procedure for me. He was kind, attentive, and professional.
