About Us

Dr. Barry Greene has been performing laparoscopic surgery in the Washington Region for 20 years. In 2001, patients began asking him to perform laparoscopic gastric bypass for weight loss. Dr Greene began performing the surgeries, and after seeing the significant impact bariatric surgery can have, he committed his practice to helping those struggling with obesity. Thousands of patients have benefitted from significant long term weight loss and improvement in their health, as well as very low complication rates. Our program is recognized as a National Center of Excellence for Bariatric Surgery. We are also proud to serve as a regional resource for complex and revisional laparoscopic bariatric and general surgery.

Our comprehensive program is the culmination of years of refinement in providing outstanding care with excellent results. Bariatric – or weight loss – surgery has been proven to be by far the most successful treatment for morbid obesity. Surgical options continue to evolve and we are proud to offer the most minimally invasive Laparoscopic procedures including the most well-known procedures: Adjustable Gastric Banding (often called the Lap Band), Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, and Revisional Surgery. We also perform lesser-known treatments such as Endoluminal Incisionless surgery (ROSE, POSE) and Gastric Plication.
