Find a Surgeon

Paul Chandler, MD

I was drawn to becoming a physician because a career in medicine offers the unique combination of science, problem-solving and helping others. I chose to focus on surgery because it can resolve illnesses. This is particularly true with bariatric (weight loss) surgery, which can help prevent complications from diseases like diabetes.

Long-term studies have proven that bariatric surgery is the most effective and durable weight loss treatment, but each patient must also be prepared to actively participate in a multidisciplinary program. This includes nutrition, behavior and exercise counseling. Therefore, my team and I carefully screen each patient. Then we discuss each person’s unique health situation and all the options so that we can then make the best surgical decision together.

During my surgical training, I was recognized as the surgery intern of the year in 2017, surgery resident of the year in 2018 and chief resident of the year in 2021. However, learning is a lifelong journey, so I am continuously training in the latest techniques for minimally invasive, laparoscopic, robotic and bariatric surgery.

I am an active member of American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons, Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders, and American College of Surgeons. In addition to bariatric surgery, I also perform minimally invasive general surgery such as hernia, appendix, gallbladder and colon procedures.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and hiking with my wife and our two daughters, as well as surfing at the beach.
