Our Bariatric Surgeons

The Weight Management Center at Palmetto Health is proud to have two top bariatric surgeons on staff. Dr. Dalton Prickett and Dr. J. Benjamin Tribble with Surgical Associates of South Carolina are both active members of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and lead our team of experts.

They perform adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy, and the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure and are backed by a caring support staff dedicated to helping our patients remain comfortable throughout their procedure and recovery period.
