Dr. Goparaju’s Treatment Philosophy
“My philosophy is to treat the patient in front of me, not just the disease or the disease process. This requires I understand their entire history and any problems they may have so I can take everything into account during the planning of treatment programs. I prefer not to have a computer between my patient and myself so I can dedicate my time purely to their needs.”
Dr. Goparaju performs gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and gastric band removal and revisional bariatric surgery such as converting gastric sleeves to bypasses or removing bands and converting them to bypasses or sleeves. He also repairs hiatal, ventral (abdominal wall), and inguinal hernias, and perform cholecystectomy, appendectomy, colectomy, and many other general surgery procedures. For the vast majority of operations, Dr. Goparaju utilizes advanced minimally invasive surgery techniques, including robotics.
