Biography

William Fuller, MD, has special clinical interests in robotic surgery, single-incision (scarless) surgical techniques and advanced research and development in minimally invasive surgery, including developing innovative surgical instruments and operating techniques in general and bariatric surgery. He is also experienced in laparoscopic and bariatric surgery (gastric bypass, gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy).


As a compassionate and highly skilled advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgeon, Dr. Fuller believes the key to every patient’s best outcome is a relationship built on trust and respect. As a result, he believes in treating each weight loss surgery patient as though they were a family member, with great attention, focus and care.


When he is not caring for patients, Dr. Fuller enjoys word games, reading science fiction and spending quality time with his family. He likes to stay active by going to the gym regularly and playing tennis and basketball.
