Dr. Calvert trained with some of the pioneers of Bariatric Surgery operations during his residency at the University of Pittsburgh. He learned about the laparopscopic weight loss operations during his general surgery training and then went on to perform many body lifts and other operations for patients who had excees skin due to massive weight loss.
Dr. Calvert believes that the plastic surgeon need to be involved in the post-operative treatment of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. Problems associated with skin excess arise fairly routinely and he has the answers for these problems. He is a frequent speaker at bariatric support groups and has been serving the weight loss population since his time in residency. He often works with his team of plastic surgeons to help reduce operating times thus minimizing the risks of these difficult operations.
