At Southern Arizona Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery, we provide care as a team. Each surgeon has a dedicated bariatric team to care for their patients from the first phone call until after surgery. After surgery, our patients receive most of their care and support from our Nurse Practitioners, Deb and Billi Jo, and their medical assistants. That said, we are ALL committed to providing consistent, professional, compassionate care to each of our patients no matter which surgeon you are seeing.
