The information we gathered for this site comes from a lot of different resources. We scour the weight loss surgery forums for patient reviews, testimonials and input on surgeons. We cover boilerplate information from a surgeon's and sometimes hospitals' website. We read reviews from patients on sites like ObesityHelp and the like. After all the content is gathered, we provide a detailed review of the weight loss surgeon with a relative (star) rating.

Focusing solely on price is a bad choice for must patients. A surgeon performing more than four weight loss surgeries per day is generally too taxing to be sustainable. This is why we recommend patients find surgeons who work out of full-service hospitals, surgeons who perform their own surgeries (rather than ghost surgeons), and surgeons who have better hand/eye coordination for endoscopic proficiency.

* Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery, otherwise known as SILS or single port incision, is the latest breakthrough in bariatric surgery. With single port incision, surgeons are able to perform the same surgery through one port providing patients with a host of advantages including: fewer scars, less scarring, faster recovery time and a better aesthetically-pleasing abdomen.
