Care Philosophy

Dr. Kajese was drawn to the rewarding and challenging field of minimally invasive bariatric surgery years ago. Using weight loss surgery as a tool, she passionately guides her patients in the lifestyle changes necessary for them to regain the healthy life they deserve. "If I can help a patient become free from life threatening medical co-morbidities by helping them lose weight, then I have done my job and fulfilled my calling."
