Director, Bariatric and Metabolic Endoscopy

Dr. Christopher Chapman is a skilled gastroenterologist with an expertise in interventional endoscopy. Dr. Chapman is a member of the Center for Endoscopic Research and Therapeutics (CERT), where he treats patients suffering from gastrointestinal disorders through minimally invasive endoscopic techniques. Dr. Chapman has a special interest in endoscopic bariatric therapies, such as intragastric balloon placement, endoscopic suturing (endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and bariatric surgery revision) and aspiration therapy. These procedures offer a minimally invasive, reversible weight loss option for patients who are not candidates for, or decide against, surgery.
