Dr Duperier has been my surgeon for my gastric bypass surgery and for my gall bladder removal. Both surgeries were perfect and my recovery was swift. Dr Duperier is not only an excellent surgeon, but is also a caring, compassionate person who wants the very best for his patients and will go to any lengths to meet his patients needs with encouragnent and care. I trust him completely and highly recommend him to all.
I believe you have to weigh several things about a Doctor.....His bedside manner is less than ADEQUATE....best described as EXTREMELY ARROGANT. If it were ONLY his bedside manner I was interested in I wouldn't even go SEE him. HOWEVER, I had a gastric sleeve as have about 10-15 others that I know, all done by Dr. Duperier...and EACH AND EVERY ONE have been complication free and EXTREMELY successful. SO...if you are looking for kindness, understanding, and compassion....look elsewhere as you will NOT get it from this physician. If however you want a successful outcome with no complications...he's your man! I'll take skill over bedside manner.....any day!
procedure done ate smaller portions however no weight loss. 8 month check dr couldnt explain weight gain. The procedure should have eliminated the stomach portion where the ghrelin is produce however stomach still rumbles with hunger. 2 yrs later experience frequent bouts of diarrhea unable to travel need to be close to bathroom
