    Welcome to Foothills Weight Loss Surgeons

    Our name is changing, but our mission is the same! 

    We are changing our name from “Specialists” to “Surgeons” to more clearly explain who we are and what we do. We are Bariatric Surgeons who perform surgery for the treatment of obesity to improve health and overall quality of life.

    We’re still the first surgical weight loss practice in the Knoxville area. Since 2002 we have helped thousands of individuals improve their lives through weight loss surgery.

    We know that bariatric surgery can improve or resolve many serious obesity-related problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux, weight-bearing joint pain, and sleep apnea. We are passionate about giving our patients the tools they need to improve their lives and health for the long term.


    Announcing Our New Online Seminar

    An informed choice begins with learning. This is why at Foothills Weight Loss Surgeons, we provide our prospective patients with a free informational seminar. We are excited to announce the launch of our new and improved online seminar!

    We believe that equipping our patients with the right information is one of the first steps in achieving better health. While we offer live (in-person) seminars, we know that your schedule and location may prevent you from attending, so we’ve created an online seminar to help educate you about the bariatric surgery process before beginning your journey. Go to the online seminar.
