Our Surgeons

We are leader in the field of bariatric surgery thanks in large part to a reputable team of bariatric surgeons, led by Sheila Partridge, MD, CWLS Medical Director, and Associate Chair, Department of Surgery, including Rajan Chahal, MD, Aaron Bloomenthal, MD, and Susana Wishnia, MD. In addition to our surgeons, our team includes three dietitians and three licensed psychiatric specialists for comprehensive care. We also have a skilled team of two RN First Assistants and a coordinator who helps patients navigate their journey.
