Fort Sanders Center for Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric surgery can often benefit morbidly obese people or those with obesity-related illnesses who have been unable to lose weight through other methods. Fort Sanders Center for Bariatric Surgery is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement and is led by Mark Colquitt, MD and Jonathan Ray, MD. Both are board-certified surgeons who have helped more than 3,000 patients lose close to 300,000 pounds.Learn more about surgical options here.
