For bariatric surgery, it’s Dr. Domkowski ‘hands’ down - Featured in Vero News
When Diane Muller went looking for a bariatric surgeon to help her overcome her serious obesity problems – including a body mass index of 55, hypothyroidism, lymphedema and fatty liver disease – she probably didn’t expect to find a self-described “four-handed surgeon.”
But she did.
The tall, genial Dr. Patrick Domkowski graduated from Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown University’s medical school and served his internship, fellowship and residency at Duke University. He also happens to be chief of surgery at the Sebastian River Medical Center – this area’s only “Bariatric Center of Excellence” as designated by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the American College of Surgeons.
