Gastric Sleeve

Serving patients seeking weight loss surgery in Dover and the surrounding area

Thomas P. Barnett, MD, FACS, is a skilled weight loss surgeon treating obesity patients in Dover, Delaware. He has more than 20 years of experience and offers advanced laparoscopic bariatric surgery. Dr. Barnett and his certified physician assistant, Nicole A. Fisher, have worked together since 2002. ASMBS Dr. Barnett performs Gastric Sleeve surgery. This surgery is a restrictive type of wight loss surgery that permanently reduces the size of your stomach. During this type of bariatric surgery a large section of your stomach is removed, which essentially changes your stomach from a football type size to a banana shape and size. This provides a "full" feeling with less food than before surgery. It reduces hunger hormones which is believed to suppress appetite. The average patient loses around 60 to 80% of their excess weight. Type 2 Diabetes sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and joint pain often significantly improve or resolve. Other potential benefits of bariatric surgery can include improved self-esteem, increased energy, enhanced relationships, and increased ability to participate in activities. Dr. Barnett performs weight loss surgery at accredited medical centers located in Dover and Milford. His compassion and comprehensive approach to weight loss has helped scores of patients go through a rewarding weight loss journey from the beginning to end. Dr. Barnett understands that postoperative care and nutrition are essential to the success of bariatric surgery and skillfully guides all of his patients, offering medical, nutritional and emotional support.
