In brief: Bariatric surgeon

While many general surgeons are able to perform bariatric surgery, bariatric surgeons focus in this area and often have additional training.
Look for a bariatric surgeon who meets center of excellence criteria from a national surgical organization such as the american society for metabolic and bariatric surgery or the american college of surgeons.
