Bariatric Surgery
Michael Snyder, MD, FACS, FASMBS, is the Medical Director of the Bariatric Surgery Center at Rose Medical Center. He has performed more than 6,000 bariatric surgical procedures, including more than 2,000 restrictive gastric bands and more than 150 sleeves each year. His interest in bariatric surgery is based on his knowledge that morbid obesity is one of the essential, yet vastly ignored diseases physicians are exposed to every day. In addition to surgical weight-loss treatment, Dr. Snyder was the first in the region to perform the non-surgical intragastric balloon procedure. This revolutionary weight loss product combines comprehensive nutritional coaching and support with a non-permanent, same-day outpatient balloon procedure.

Dr. Snyder earned his medical degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine and became interested in bariatric surgery during his residency at Oregon Health Sciences University. He went on to complete an American Society for Bariatric Surgery certified preceptorship in Oregon where he studied under Dr. Latham Flanagan, Jr. He later expanded his expertise with instruction from internationally recognized laparoscopic bariatric surgery leader, Dr. Alan Wittgrove as well as undertaking training at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Snyder has special interest in gastric revisions, including band revisions; converting bands, sleeves, vertical banded gastroplasty and Nissens to alternative procedures; re-making bypasses to correct restriction and pouch size; and fixing complications. He is also skilled in Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB) procedures, intragastric balloon non-surgical weight-loss gastric sleeve surgery, general surgery, pediatric weight loss, and minimally invasive Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RNY).

An internationally published author of “Full: A Life Without Dieting,” Dr. Snyder is an active member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Dr. Snyder's weight loss surgery treatment is both comprehensive and methodical. He believes that, in the appropriate patient, the surgical treatment of morbid obesity is the essential therapy that can cure a myriad of ills.
