Foothills Weight Loss Specialists is now known as Foothills Weight Loss Surgeons to better 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 live in a busy and confusing world. Having a business name and logo that clearly describes our business is very important to us. We felt the Foothills Weight Loss Specialists could be confused with a medical practice or weight loss clinic and did not identify us as bariatric surgeons or weight loss surgeons,” says Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Mark Colquitt.

The Foothills Weight Loss Surgeons office partners with Fort Sanders Center for Bariatric Surgery, which is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement and offers.
