Dr. Paul Enochs founded Central North Carolina’s first and at the time, only private weight loss surgery center in 2002 in Raleigh, NC. As an innovator, he performed the area’s first gastric bypass, first sleeve gastrectomy, first Lap-Band procedure, and first duodenal switch and SADI procedure. To date, Dr. Enochs has performed more Bariatric procedures in the North Carolina area than any other bariatric surgeon.
Dr. Enochs is the founding partner of Bariatric Specialists of North Carolina.

Dr. Enochs is a leading expert nationwide in Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) and Robotic surgery. He is a national spokesperson and proctor for SILS and has travelled the country instructing and training surgeons in this procedure. In addition, using the techniques developed with the SILS Band procedure, his unparalleled experience allows him to now offer this innovative technique to his sleeve gastrectomy patients. Dr. Enochs is also a proctor for the robotic platform and is currently teaching other bariatric surgeons across the country this technique.

Dr. Enochs recently added the Sleeve Gastrectomy with Single Anastamosis Duodenoilial Bypass (SIPS/SADS/SADI-S) to the arsenal of procedures he performs. This procedure is one of the latest advancements in bariatric surgery and provides patients with increased weight loss as well as may resolve type 2 diabetes altogether. Most patients currently undergoing this procedure with Dr. Enochs are participating in a multi-center yearlong research study. In addition to these new Bariatric procedures, Dr. Enochs remains an expert in complex revisional bariatric procedures for patients who find they are in need of a new bariatric procedure due to weight regain, insufficient weight loss, or consequence of the original bariatric procedure.

Dr. Enochs is Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a Fellow of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
