    Weight Loss Surgery with Dr. Schoen

    It is rewarding to be part of our multidisciplinary bariatric program. From working with weight loss surgery patients, I understand that obesity is a chronic lifelong disease. I focus on excellent outcomes, compassionate care, and respect my patients' weight loss goals. -Dr. Schoen

    Dr. Schoen specializes in minimally invasive and robotic weight loss surgery. He expertly performs weight loss surgery procedures including the Roux-en-Y (RNY) Gastric Bypass, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), Lap-Band Adjustable Gastric Banding, and weight loss surgery revisions. Also, he is known for his experience in treating patients that have regained weight after having weight loss surgery.

    For patients that do not qualify for surgery or prefer not to undergo surgery, several non-surgical procedures are available including Intragastric Balloons, Aspiration Therapy, Endoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, Endoscopic Gastric Bypass Revision, and Endoscopic Management of Surgical Complications.
