The Bariatric Care Team
The decision to have bariatric surgery comes about only through a careful, deliberate process that takes into account all of the benefits and risks. Greenwich Hospital boasts not only a state-of-the-art facility, but a team of experts that is committed to helping each patient make informed decisions in all aspects of the process – before surgery as well as during recovery and after-care.
James Bonheur, MD is a board-certified surgeon who has performed bariatric surgeries since 2007. He shares the commitment of Greenwich Hospital's bariatric care team in addressing the needs of the "whole person" throughout the entire weight loss process.
