Standard Bariatrics Recognizes Female Clinicians in Bariatric Surgery

Standard Bariatrics proudly recognizes Meredith Sweeney, MD, of Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Louisville, KY, for her contributions to the field of bariatrics. A bariatric and general surgeon, Dr. Sweeney and her team of first assists have skillfully pioneered and completed over 100 laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomies using Titan SGS®, the 23cm gastric sleeve stapler from Standard Bariatrics.

“Titan SGS® has streamlined my sleeve procedure making it reproducible which has led to improved, predictable and consistent patient outcomes. We are extremely pleased with this technique,” said Dr. Sweeney.
