Dr Michael Baptista

Biography:
Specializes in weight loss surgery and management of the patients before and after surgery. He understands the multifactorial problem of obesity, and the surgical options for it.

Has had extensive training in bariatric surgery with focus in minimally invasive surgery having performed thousands of weight loss surgery procedures. His past training also extends to the areas of general surgery, thoracic surgery, and surgical research.

Besides his general surgery and bariatric surgery training he also did a fellowship in Robotic Surgery, and Minimally Invasive Surgery. One of his expertise is to perform surgery using only one special trocar and instruments at the belly button, leaving a scar that is almost invisible when it is healed up.

He uses this advance technique for several surgeries such as gallbladders, appendix, hernias, and most of his bariatric surgeries. Dr. Baptista has been trained in several prestigious top medical institutions both in Brazil and in the USA, like University of Minnesota, Mayo Clinic, Rush University, and University of Illinois at Chicago. He is also a consultant and proctor in bariatric surgery, teaching colleagues that are interested in the field of weight loss surgery. Dr. Baptista is a published author in the field and has given many courses, both on how to perform bariatric surgery, and how to follow up with patients afterwards.
