Transform Your Life with Bariatric Surgery

Dr. Patrick Chiasson & Dr. Stephen Burpee

General Surgery

Dr. Stephen Burpee and Dr. Patrick Chiasson are both board certified and fellowship trained minimally invasive general surgeons.They were the first surgeons to bring Minimally Invasive bariatric surgery to Tucson. They were also the first surgeons to bring minimally invasive surgical management of non-cancerous and cancerous conditions of the esophagus, stomach, and colon. Bariatric Surgery is actually a general surgery subspecialty. While most of their practice is focused on bariatric surgery, they are both deeply experienced and still perform most of the general surgery procedures using minimally invasive and robotic techniques. If you are referred to our practice for a general surgery procedure we look forward to participating in your care.

Both surgeons operate at Northwest Medical Center and St. Mary's Hospital depending on your insurance requirements and/or preference.
