NATIONALLY RENOWNED SURGEON Dr. Thomas Umbach is a board-certified and fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon. Newsweek magazine has identified him as one of the nation’s top bariatric surgeons. Dr. Umbach’s other notable achievements include being named “America’s Top Surgeon” in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and several “Who’s Who” listings.
“Bariatrics has always been my passion,” says Dr. Umbach. “My practice is 100% devoted to helping obese clients achieve healthier lifestyles. It brings me great pleasure to see my clients shed their excess weight and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.”
Unlike many bariatric surgeons who focus on one or two procedures, Umbach offers his experience and expertise in gastric banding, rouxen-y gastric bypass, gastric sleeve resection and revisional surgery. Some Canadian clients, for example, choose Dr. Umbach for gastric sleeve procedures that they cannot find in Canada. — Clients come from all over the world
Many of Dr. Umbach’s out-of-state and foreign clients combine their surgical procedures with a fun-filled vacation in Las Vegas. Thanks to the advanced technology and surgical techniques used by Dr. Umbach, most procedures do not require lengthy recovery periods. As a result, his bariatric surgery clients – especially those who travel from other states or countries – often celebrate the blossoming of their new lives by enjoying the exciting thrills of Las Vegas after surgery.
“Many overseas clients suffer from obesity related health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and heart disease,” says Umbach. “They present with digestive disorders, sleep disorders, respiratory problems and reproductive health issues and many are on medications for their conditions. My goal is to help them regain their health and their self-esteem so they can enjoy life.” — This doctor is always “in” for his clients Dr. Umbach offers his clients something they cannot get anywhere else – his own personal cell phone number and an offer to call him anytime, day or night. “I want my clients to be able to reach me 24/7 with any questions or concerns they have for as long as they need me,” says Umbach. “Most are amazed when I give them my cell phone number, and even more amazed when I answer their calls.”
Umbach offers every client comprehensive pre- and post-surgical programs, too. His pre-surgical program is aimed at maximizing client safety and increasing their chances for excellent surgical results. His post-surgical programs include nutrition and fitness counseling, support groups to help them adjust to life after bariatric surgery and psychological and emotional counseling to empower them for a better quality of life.
