Dr. Peter C Leport has the following 2 specialties
- Bariatric Medicine
Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

I highly recommend Dr. Leport and his team! I was going to have my Gastric Bypass surgery with another surgical team at another office, when I found out about Dr. Leport. We met and discussed my case, and I instantly felt at ease with him and his overall experience. The prior surgical team I was working with, had an office that was very much like the McDonalds of Gastric Bypass, after several concerning conversations with their team, I found Dr. Leport and his team, much more professional and realized he truly cared about his patients and their results. I made a decision to change my Surgical team and went with Dr. Leport and his team. My surgery went well, and I have had no complications. In fact I truly believe Dr. Leport and his team have given me my active life back. I have lost 135 pounds in the year since my surgery and I could not be more happier. I am still losing weight, and I am so glad I made the decision to go with Dr. Leport for my Gastric Bypass. It has been a positive life changing experience. Thank you Dr. Leport for everything you and your team have done, to make this experience the best it could be. I am so Thankful and grateful!
I am paying out of pocket for my procedure with Dr. LePort, Gastric Bypass procedure. So far everyone and all facets have been above what I would have expected. I know that most folks use their insurance, but my Cobra finally expired prior to having the procedure completed. I waited over 8 months for my insurance to authorize and approve the procedure, than to be notified that my former insurance only allowed 'X' number of GB's per covered individual per month. So by the time my surgery was approved to be done, my insurance had expired. As soon as I called and notified the Staff that I was paying out of pocket...I was scheduled immediately for surgery. Due to the Holidays, Xmas and New Years I asked for the surgery in January. I was accomadeted immediately. I have not seen Dr. LePort yet, but I expect no issues there either. Everyone prior and currently has been professional, courtieous and timely. NO issues.
