About Me

My expertise is in metabolic and bariatric surgery, as well as other advanced minimally invasive operations. I am very passionate about the benefits bariatric surgery can provide to patients who have struggled with weight and other medical problems. Our program is geared toward providing the right operation for the right patient with life-long care to optimize results.

I believe patients deserve a surgeon who listens to them. It's important to hear their concerns. This feedback is an important part of determining a care plan, including an operation that fits their expectations. My desire is to offer patients the least "invasive" operation that meets their needs.

The best part of working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the people. There is a noticeable commitment to offering the highest quality of care. I love being surrounded by really smart individuals who are passionate about what they do.

In my free time I enjoy reading, relaxing with my family and spending time outdoors. I am an avid tennis player and also enjoy shooting trap and sporting clays.

    Needleman is an excellent surgeon from the "OR staff" perspective. It was great to experience his "office side" and know he is wonderful in that aspect of care as well.
