Munroe Bariatrics Physician

Meet Kevin Hoddinott, MD

Why choosing the right bariatric surgeon is critical to your health and your weight-loss success

Weight loss surgery is serious business. The health rewards can be incredible, but it's not for everyone—it's only for those who really need it. And whether the surgery is your first or a revision of a poorly-performing past surgery, all weight loss surgical procedures are not the same. Further, it is generally acknowledged that the best results following revisional bariatric operations are obtained by the most experienced bariatric surgeons.
