The Surgical Team

Founded in 2011 by Board Certified surgeon Peter Denk, MD FACS, GI Surgical Specialists is the first surgical group specializing in minimally invasive treatment of gastrointestinal disease via incisionless and single incision abdominal surgery in the United States. Steve Siegal, MD FACS joined Dr. Denk at GI Surgical Specialists in 2022 after receiving the same highly specialized minimally invasive surgical training. Whether you seek a weight loss, gastrointestinal or general surgeon, we believe the benefits of minimally invasive and incisionless surgical procedures exhibit both significantly decreased pain and dramatically improved physical appearance.

The experienced surgical team at GI Surgical Specialists is sensitive to weight-related physical and emotional concerns as well as the individual wellness needs of each of our patients. As both weight loss surgeons and general surgeons, Dr. Denk and Dr. Siegal provide the most advanced surgical treatments available and partner with the medical device industry to improve care by providing the latest technology for our patients.
