At Greater Columbia Bariatric Surgeons, Dr. Earl Fox and his team of expert surgeons provide bariatric surgeries and weight loss support to patients from in and around West Richland, Washington. Dr. Fox and his team provide weight loss consultations and obesity treatments ranging from medical weight loss plans to bariatric surgeries including the gastric balloon, gastric sleeves, and the lap band. Patient care is the primary focus of each and every member of the staff, from the receptionist who greets patients at the door to the surgeons who meet with patients to discuss their specific set of needs before creating an individualized treatment plan. Providing the highest possible level of service is a team effort, which is why Dr. Fox has assembled a group of professionals who have the skills, training, expertise, and compassion needed to ensure that every patient is treated like the distinct individual that he or she is. Dr. Fox has been in practice since 1986. He went on to become one of the earliest surgeons to offer bariatric surgery using FDA-approved bands. Since then, he has specialized in adjustable gastric banding (also known as LAP-BAND®) and has performed more than 2,000 of these surgeries. His dedication and hard work have led his practice to grow, and Dr. Fox is proud to offer bariatric surgery services to patients throughout the West Richland, Washington area.
