Nationally renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Thomas Umbach is board-certified and fellowship- trained. He’s been recognized as one of the nation’s top bariatric surgeons by Newsweek and Time magazines. Dr. Umbach’s other notable achievements include being named New Economy’s Best Health Care Consultants for 2013 and 2014, Best Bariatrics Surgeon for 2014 and Best Medical Tourism Provider for 2012 and 2013. He was also named as one of the best Weight Loss Management Physicians for 2011, 2012 and 2013 by U.S. Commerce Association.

“Bariatrics has always been my passion,” says Umbach. “My practice is 100 percent 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.”

“Many clients also suffer from obesity-related health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and heart disease,” states 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.”

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 Umbach for gastric sleeve procedures that they cannot find in Canada.


Many of 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 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 after surgery by enjoying the exciting thrills of Las Vegas.


Umbach offers his clients something they cannot get anywhere else – his personal cellphone number with 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 cellphone number, and even more amazed when I answer their calls.” Umbach offers every client comprehensive presurgical and post-surgical programs, too. His presurgical 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.
