Your path to weight loss surgery

Weight loss surgery is typically scheduled several months after a patient’s initial consultation, and depends on individual circumstances and insurance requirements. Each individual is carefully evaluated for all related medical conditions. This often requires special studies and occasionally consultations from medical specialists. The Duke Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery will schedule surgeries only after they feel confident that weight loss surgery is right for the individual and that the individual is fully aware of associated risks. 

Meet the Center’s final surgeon, Jin S. Yoo, MD.
