Dr. Victor Gonzalez, MD, FACS, is a Board Certified General Surgeon specializing in General Surgery and Bariatric Surgery using advanced minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive surgery, also called laparoscopic surgery, is surgery using several 1/4 to 1/2 incisions to gain access to the organs of the abdomen. These incisions are made to allow the surgeon to place a camera and instruments into the abdomen to complete the surgical procedure. The benefits of using these small incisions rather than one large one are: less pain, quicker recovery and return to normal activity, a shorter hospital stay, and a less noticeable scar. Bariatric surgery, also known as weight-loss surgery or obesity surgery, is surgery designed to cause a significant and long -lasting weight loss in severely obese patients.
Dr. Gonzalez has devoted 20 plus years to medical training, which includes completing a Fellowship in Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery (Laparoscopic Surgery), Bariatric Surgery (Weight Loss Surgery), and General Surgery.
