Dr. Witt can now perform bariatric surgery through St. Luke's Bariatric Surgery Program.

Medical Director Dr. John Bollins and his staff work closely with patients before and after surgery to prepare for and work through the lifestyle changes needed for a lasting, positive outcome. Bariatric surgical services include sleeve gastrectomy.
