Dr. Boyce Takes the Physician Spotlight in East Tennessee Medical News
Weight loss surgeon and Director of the New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery Stephen Boyce, MD is the proud new occupant of Physician Spotlight, a regular article in the East Tennessee Medical News. The print and online publication recently profiled our own Dr. Boyce as part of their ongoing Physician Spotlight series, and covered topics including Dr. Boyce’s biographical history and his practice’s designation as a Center of Excellence® by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery was one of the first in the nation to achieve that distinction.
The article also mentions Dr. Boyce’s recent selection to participate in an investigational bariatric surgery procedure called laparoscopic greater curvature placation (LGCP), a treatment designed to “shrink” the stomach without removing part of it or relying on implantable devices such as gastric bands. LGCP is also a reversible treatment. Dr. Boyce is one of only 45 surgeons in the nation trained to perform the procedure, and the New Life Center will shortly begin accepting qualified candidate patients into the study.
We are so proud of Dr. Boyce’s inclusion in Physician Spotlight, and we invite you to visit the East Tennessee Medical News website at the following link to read the full article: http://easttennessee.medicalnewsinc.com/news.php?viewStory=2158.
