Hi, Where is Dr. Boyce located Please and Thank You?Okay, I am gonna mention Dr. Boyce as a RNY to DS revision surgeon. When I asked back last July (2013) for his information so I could pass it along, this was what I got back, My question in black. Her answer in Red.
Got this from his Office Manager, Robin is his nurse:
There is a list of Duodenal Switch patients from ALL over the country who help others learn about this particular surgery and which surgeons do the procedure.
I want to add Dr. Boyce to that list but we need a few details if you don't mind answering.
1) About how many DS surgeries has he done (not the practice but him) just over 500.
2) Complication rate? 10%
3) Where did he learn the skill to do a DS? Who was his mentor? Dr. Smith in Atlanta and thru 24 years of experience with Weight Loss surgery.
Robin said he has done revisions (lap band to DS or RNY to DS.), yes both
4) About how many revisions to a DS has he done. 155
5) Where did he learn to do that revision? Self taught in private practice Dr. Boyce is currently a faculty member for the Ethicon Education Program for both DS and Revisions. He teaches courses for physicians as well as having surgeons come to our practice to learn the procedure.
