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 includes advanced therapeutic endoscopic procedures.

Finally, when I am not operating on my patients I am actively involved in research focused on improving patient outcomes and examining both inequity in access to care and health care-related obesity bias.

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, painting, cooking and running.

    Dr. Noria is the absolute best! I've had a lot of complications over the past 18 yrs. after gastric bypass surgery. My surgeon where I live transferred me to OSU & Dr. Noria. I have loved her since! She most likely saved my life which I will always remain thankful for. She still continues to give me the best care possible. OSU medical center is beyond blessed to have her on staff.
