    Bariatric Surgery with Dr. Jorge Huaco-Cateriano

    With all of the experience and training that I have, I feel that I have a lot to offer to you as my patient. Every time that I see a patient that comes into my office three months or six months after surgery, and they feel great, they are a different person and they look great-they tell me how active they have gotten and how their lives have changed, it makes me feel that I am really doing the right thing. I like to know my patients really well so I take a lot of time to know where they really come from, what they are doing, what are their expectations and then approach them individually. It’s not just a patient and not just a number. It’s a person that is like you so you treat them like you. -Dr. Huaco-Cateriano

    Utilizing the latest state-of-the-art technology and techniques in minimally invasive weight loss procedures, Dr. Huaco-Cateriano is committed to excellence in patient care. Known by his patients for his personalized care and compassion, Dr. Huaco-Cateriano offers the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), the Roux-en-Y (RNY) Gastric Bypass, and bariatric revision options
