Weight Loss Surgery: Arizona


I’m Dr. Terry Simpson, one of Arizona’s most experienced weight loss surgeons. My patients come from Phoenix, Scottsdale, and all over the Valley. My goal is to help people who are struggling with their weight by sharing healthy lifestyle tools, with comprehensive post-op weight loss surgery support. It’s not just about losing weight… it’s about making your surgery work for you, and living a healthy lifestyle.

I’ve been doing weight loss surgery since the early ’90s, and in addition to my experience, I have a passion for food, and how it works in the body. I combine my knowledge and my passion and share helpful information about surgery and nutrition.You’ll find my very popular online courses for Mastering Your Lap-Band and Succeeding with the Gastric Sleeve on this website. This means you don’t have to live in Phoenix, Scottsdale, or even Arizona to receive support. Additional weight loss surgery resources are available by scrolling through the navigation menu and visiting my Weight Loss Surgery Information site, www.DrSimpson.net.


I Want you to Succeed with the Lap-Band

In my profession, I discuss weight loss success and failures with patients, regularly.  I often say to my patients that weight loss surgery provides a tool to help your body shed excess weight.  Understanding how the tool works, and how you can make lifestyle changes to support the tool are critical elements of weight loss success.  For my patients who have had lap-band surgery, or for those considering having lap-band surgery, I suggest checking out my online course  – Master the Band.  The course is delivered via email over the course of several weeks. I’ve shared the information that I consider to be the most comprehensive and crucial to maximizing your weight loss surgery results.

Be Successful with your Gastric Sleeve

I’ve also designed an online course – Caring for Your Gastric Sleeve.  My patients who have undergone gastric sleeve surgery know that there are foods you should and shouldn’t eat… that’s the easy part.  There are many additional strategies for success and I compiled them and created an online course  written specifically for patients who have gastric sleeve.  The surgery is just one part of the weight loss journey, healthy habits and changes are required for real sustained  weight loss success.
