I believe that achieving a healthy weight will lead to better quality of life as well as increased longevity.
Dr. McMillian is a board certified general surgeon who specializes in bariatric or weight loss surgery and foregut surgery. She is passionate about helping patients achieve a healthy weight and improve their overall health. Her passion stems from the fact that she too has struggled with her weight for the majority of her life. She has been successful with weight loss and has maintained the weight loss for 11 years after undergoing weight loss surgery herself in 2010. The fact that she is not only a bariatric surgeon but also a patient makes her very relatable to her patients. Dr. McMillian is especially excited about helping her patients to become comfortable and proficient in the use of cardiovascular and resistance type exercise as methods to help maintain long term weight loss when combined with a higher protein/lower carbohydrate eating plan.
