He finished his general surgery residency at the Wayne State University/Detroit General Hospital in 1980 followed by a Fellowship in peripheral vascular surgery at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. Subsequently trained in bariatric surgery, Dr. Fox limits weight loss surgery only to the Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band, otherwise known as the Lap Band.

Board Certified

Dr. Fox is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (F.A.C.S.). This is the highest recognition that your doctor has specialized knowledge and training related to the pre-operative evaluation and diagnosis, operative technical skills/ability and post operative management of surgical problems. It is also just as important to know when not to operate and treat with a medical nonsurgical approach – some of the best surgery is nonsurgical! At the same time, if an operation is indicated, good judgment is necessary to recommend the appropriate operation for the individual that will give the best results.
