At the Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute (CBSI), Dr. Brown has successfully performed over 6,000 bariatric procedures (robotic bariatric surgery, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and revisional surgeries) over the past 17 years, providing patients with a new lease on life. Patients lose excess weight long-term and co-morbidities like diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypertension resolve or improve. Daily living is positively impacted for our patients who choose weight-loss surgery with a lasting opportunity to achieve good health and longevity. Call us today to schedule a consultation and begin the process to redefine your future!
