    Published: 01/03/2012

    Dr Ian SorianoIan S. Soriano, MD, FACS, a board-certified bariatric surgeon with impressive credentials and comprehensive experience, has joined Einstein Healthcare Network. His expertise will further enhance a program already recognized as a Bariatric Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

    Dr. Soriano was a resident at Einstein from 2001 to 2006, then completed the prestigious Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery Fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic – Florida Campus. Most recently, he was Associate Director of the Bariatric Surgery Program at Temple University Hospital and Interim Director of Bariatric Surgery at Jeanes Hospital.

    “Dr. Soriano adds to the excellence of the department in every way,” said Ramsey Dallal, MD, director of the bariatrics program.  “His training at the Cleveland Clinic and his superb skill and surgical outcomes greatly benefit our program and our patients.  We are lucky to have him.”

    Dr. Soriano was equally enthusiastic about “coming home” to Einstein.

    “This is a great opportunity to join a bariatrics practice that already includes two of the region’s premier surgeons,” said Dr. Soriano. “I’m also looking forward to working with people who trained me and the numerous physicians I met as a resident.”

    Einstein Bariatrics provides “excellent care at the level of a university hospital but with the personal touch of a community hospital,” Dr. Soriano said. The program is based at Einstein Medical Center Elkins Park and Dr. Soriano will also be seeing patients at Montgomery Hospital Medical Center in Norristown, which is now part of Einstein Healthcare Network.

    Dr. Soriano said Einstein Bariatrics is distinguished by the “intimate” and personalized nature of patient care, in which the department’s surgeons are involved with patients from the evaluation through post-operative care and beyond – as opposed to programs where a surgeon simply does the operation and is otherwise unavailable.

    Dr. Soriano joins Dr. Dallal and Alfred Trang, MD, to create a bariatrics expertise that is unrivaled in the region.
