Get to know Dr. Jaime Cepeda
Hello, my name is Dr. Jaime Cepeda.
I’m a board certified general surgeon, specializing in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. I received my medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2006, I completed my surgical residency at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York City.
I joined Tristate Bariatrics in 2012, after seeing the care and dedication exercised by the staff and my partners at the practice. This dedication compelled me to focus my efforts on making a difference in the lives of each of our patients. My primary goal is to ensure each patient receive the care needed before, during and after surgery. I believe that efficient patient “after care” enables them to achieve long-term weight loss success. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss the benefits of our program. Obesity and its health related issues do not have to hold you back from living a fuller life. Let me and the staff at Tristate Bariatrics, provide you with all the necessary tools to achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle.
