5% of all health insurance plans do not include bariatric surgery.  Additionally, many patients who would benefit from weight loss surgery don’t meet insurance criteria. 


Dr Matthew Weiner MD

We offer affordable self-pay options, located in Tucson, Arizona with all procedures performed at a COE certified hospital. 

Whichever is most convenient for you, our team offers telemedicine as well as in person consultations both pre and post operative! Our practice is committed to long term follow-up care, seeing you in person or by telemedicine for as long as you’d like.

Beyond the procedures, we offer what we like to call, Before, During, and After Care. We provide you with the education, nutritional tools, and long-term support you need to lose the weight and  keep it off, forever.

Dr. Matthew Weiner bariatric surgeon with over 15 years experience is an active member of the ASMBS.  He is the author of two books, “A Pound of Cure” and “How Weight Loss Surgery Really Works” and has a bariatric cookbook coming out in May, 2021.  Dr. Weiner also has a popular weight loss surgery YouTube channel.
