Dr. Hesham Atwa Shares Why He Enjoys Bariatric Surgery So Much

June 07, 2023 | Bariatric Surgery

It is much more than performing life-saving surgeries, it is about improving the quality of life for my patients and guiding them to long-term success.

Throughout my career, I have always been drawn to and excelled at learning and utilizing advanced patient care techniques such as laparoscopic and robotic surgery, managing complex surgeries, and helping patients improve their health.

While general surgery is still a mainstay of my practice that I enjoy, years ago, I completed a fellowship in advanced bariatric surgery and more importantly, found a passion for helping my patients transform their health through weight loss surgery. As a result, I get to see them improve nearly every aspect of their life. I find this extremely rewarding both personally and professionally.

You see, as a surgeon, it is much more than performing life-saving surgeries, it is about improving the quality of life for my patients as well. With bariatric surgery, I get to celebrate significant improvements whether it is a lower number on the scale, reversal of Type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure or the ability to be more active and play with their children or grandchildren. To witness this is absolutely amazing.
