Led by fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon, Vinay Singhal, M.D., the hands-on team features a dedicated coordinator, nutritionist, physiologist and other weight loss specialists committed to your total well-being. From comprehensive pre-operative education, through compassionate follow-up care, we're here to support you through every phase of your journey.

Dr. Aksade is a product of the Easton Hospital General Surgery Residency Program and is proud to be back "home."

Adopting healthier eating habits is an integral part of the weight loss surgery experience. As a dedicated bariatric nutritionist, Allison offers the tools you need to make those behavioral and nutritional changes.
She provides a full continuum of one-on-one dietary counseling, starting with pre-surgical guidance, and continuing with ongoing coaching for long-term success. Allison also leads pre-operative Pathway to Success classes, as well as refresher classes after surgery, to help patients build and maintain healthy habits for a lifetime of success.
Depending on the type of your bariatric surgery you're having, insurance may cover all or a portion of your procedure. Ann will work closely with you create a successful roadmap for insurance and billing.
