My name is Dr. Ramon Rivera. I am a bariatric surgeon specialized in weight loss surgery for the management of obesity. I completed my surgical training in Drexel University College of Medicine in 2003 and went on to specialized in laparoscopic surgery in 2004 at Washington University in St Louis.
I have been practicing bariatric surgery for the past 15 years and all together I completed more than 2000 Laparoscopic surgeries and bariatric procedures.
I joined Tri State Bariatrics because we have a family of specialists and have created an eco-system in the management and after-care for the patient that undergo surgery in our service.

My interest is in the long term weight loss of the patient. I look forward to addressing the need of the patient though the care of a multi-disciplinary bariatric team including our dietitians, nurses, Phycologist and our surgeons.
I am looking forward to meeting with you and discussing your needs to improve your health and how our services can help achieve your long term goal and live a healthier life.
