DR. CRAIG FLOCH and DR. NEIL FLOCH are brothers who work as a team to perform a broad spectrum of life-saving weight-loss surgery. Their 19-year-old practice has been designated a Center of Excellence® for Bariatric Surgery by the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The doctors, Westport natives and sons of Dr. Martin Floch, Norwalk Hospital’s former chief of medicine, are committed to providing surgical excellence and compassionate care to all who seek to regain their health. Dr. Neil Floch, a graduate of the Boston University School of Medicine who completed his surgical residency at New York’s Beth Israel Medical Center and a fellowship in advanced laparoscopic surgery at the Mayo Clinic, is director of minimally invasive and bariatric surgery at Norwalk Hospital. Dr. Craig Floch, a graduate of Chicago Medical School who completed his surgical residency at Case Western Reserve, is director of bariatric surgery at St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
The board-certified surgeons are experts in state-of-the-art weight-loss procedures including gastric bypass, adjustable lap banding, sleeve gastrectomy and bariatric revision surgeries. While their practice has performed more than 3,000 weight-loss procedures, the doctors are also skilled advanced laparoscopic surgeons with expertise treating conditions such as reflux, hiatal hernias, gallbladder disease, breast, hernias and appendix. Dr. Craig Floch has been trained and is using the da Vinci robot for gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy as well as single incision gallbladder removal.
They see bariatric surgery as a tool to address obesity. “There are medical and emotional aspects to what we do,” says Dr. Neil Floch, “so each treatment plan is modeled to a patient’s needs.” Dr. Craig Floch adds, “While we believe weight-loss surgery is an important step for our patients, we also work with them to encourage the behavior modifications needed for long-term success. We consider our patients patients for life and are prepared to support them on their journey of sustained weight loss.”
