Michael Michel, MD

Bariatric Surgery
Dr. Michel is board certified in General Surgery. He also completed a fellowship in Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery. He served in the US Air Force early in his career as a Pararescueman (PJ). This experience motivated him to eventually become a General Surgeon. He started performing bariatric surgery in 2008. He also has extensive experience in all aspects of general surgery and has advanced training in minimally invasive esophageal surgery. His primary interests are anti-reflux surgery, bariatric surgery, and robotic surgery. He also performs all types of general surgery including hernia, gallbladder, and colon surgery, and of course prefers to do these laparoscopically or robotically when feasible.
