DR. CRAIG FLOCH and DR. NEIL FLOCH are brothers who work as a team in life-saving weight loss surgery. Their 20-year-old practice has been designated a Center of Excellence® for Bariatric Surgery by the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. Westport natives and sons of Dr. Martin Floch, Norwalk Hospital’s former chief of medicine, they are committed to providing surgical excellence and compassionate care to all who seek to regain their health. Dr. Neil Floch graduated from Boston University School of Medicine. He completed his surgical residency at New York’s Beth Israel Medical Center and a fellowship in advanced laparoscopic surgery at the Mayo Clinic. He is Director of Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at Norwalk Hospital. Dr. Craig Floch graduated Chicago Medical School and did his surgical residency at Case Western Reserve. He is Director of Bariatric Surgery at St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
They are experts in state-of-the-art weight-loss procedures including gastric bypass, adjustable lap banding, sleeve gastrectomy and bariatric revision surgeries, and have performed more than 3,000 weight-loss procedures. They also treat reflux, hiatal hernia, gallbladder disease, breast, hernias and appendix. Both doctors have been trained and can use the da Vinci robot technique for gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy and perform single-incision gallbladder removal.
Drs. Floch see bariatric surgery as a tool to address obesity and reversal of diabetes, even in patients with lower BMIs. “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.”
