Dr. Nowzaradan has dedicated much of his career to advocating quality medical management for the obese. While others were limiting weight loss surgery to those who weighed under 300-lbs, he was already performing safe laparoscopic weight loss surgery on super morbidly obese individuals who weighed in excess of 600-lbs. Dr. Nowzaradan firmly believes in the care of the obese without discrimination or prejudice.
In 2003, he performed laparoscopic weight loss surgery on the world’s heaviest dad, heaviest mom and heaviest teen. He has been featured in the hit TLC shows, Half Ton Killer as well as My 600-lb Life with the hope of influencing the public and the medical community to change their bias and negative opinion regarding severely obese individuals.
Dr. Nowzaradan has become a beacon of hope for those who have struggled with their weight. He has changed the lives of many when others weren’t willing to help them. As a doctor, he always helps to heal those that need it most.
