Weight Loss Surgery
Hawasli & Associates Eastside Surgical Associates, DBA started offering bariatric surgery in 2004 after the Lap-Band System was approved by the FDA. In 2007 we added Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure as it has emerged as a viable alternative to the Lap-Band System.
We are not only interested in doing the surgery, but also in you as a person. We know that surgery alone will not work, diet alone will not work and exercise alone will not work. This is why we established a complete program that involves three components to make the “Triangle of Success”. We will keep an eye on you for the rest of your life; lifting you up when you fall, and patting you on the back when you succeed. Our surgeons, Dietician and Program Coordinator will always be there for you. This is why our practice philosophy states that “you will never be left alone”.
