As a Registered Nurse, I have cared for many patients who took part in either bypass or gastric sleeve surgeries. I would continually ask which surgeon performed the surgery, and Dr. Baranov’s patients consistently had great success, even years after. Dr. Baranov thoroughly assesses patients prior to surgery, and addresses any issue that could potentially lead to a complication. He genuinely cares about the patient, their health and most importantly, their safety.  Dr. Baranov is the only surgeon I would allow to perform this surgery. I had complete confidence in him, and his team. His passion, dedication and competence makes him the only choice for bariatric surgery.
