About Me

As a specialist in minimally invasive surgery, my expertise includes many techniques and technologies. This includes helping patients manage significant health and weight loss challenges through bariatric surgery.

I consider being a bariatric surgeon more than being just a surgeon. It involves getting to know my patients and helping them to understand their disease. I take time to explain therapeutic options in a way that makes sense to them. I encourage patients to take an active role in improving their health, while reassuring them along the way. They appreciate knowing that I will be there to help them through their journey.

In addition to minimally invasive and bariatric surgery, my areas of expertise include hernia and endoscopy procedures.

At Ohio State, we offer patients the best of both worlds. We have the comprehensive resources of a large institution, yet patients receive individualized care from a multitude of different specialists working as a team. This is an important aspect of helping me provide the best care for my patients.

When I'm not at work, I enjoy traveling, cooking and running.

    Dr. Noria is very nice and does not talk down to me. She tells me things I understand. I got the results of my blood test, but no one called to explain.
