Welcome to Foothills Weight Loss Specialists
Foothills Weight Loss Specialists is the first surgical weight loss practice in the Knoxville area. Since 2002, we have helped more than 2,200 individuals lose a total of over 200,000 pounds – more than 100 tons – as a result of weight loss surgery.
We perform surgery for the treatment of obesity to improve health and overall quality of life. Many obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux, weight-bearing joint pain, and sleep apnea are improved or resolved following bariatric surgery.
Foothills Weight Loss Specialists is affiliated with the Fort Sanders Center for Bariatric Surgery in Knoxville. Fort Sanders is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program.
Dr. Mark Colquitt and Dr. Jonathan Ray are board certified by the American Board of Surgery and are members of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
