One of the many strengths of the USC Bariatric Surgery Program is that it involves a multidisciplinary team who are also members of the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, one of the most respected academic medical institutions in the country.

The team includes board-certified general surgeons and other trained physician specialists such as anesthesiologists, psychiatrists and psychologists, cardiologists, gastroenterologists and plastic surgeons. Patients also benefit from a compassionate, skilled support staff including nurses, registered dieticians, physical therapists and an experienced counselor/patient advocate who coordinates the aspects of a patient’s care.
