Dr. Franchell Hamilton has performed hundreds of bariatric procedures. An experienced board certified surgeon, Dr. Hamilton has made weight loss surgery her primary focus and is passionate about providing her patients with the highest level of care.

Outside of work, Dr. Hamilton loves spending time with her family, living a healthy and active lifestyle, traveling, and doing mission work. Her goal as the Medical Director of A Better Weigh Center is to offer comprehensive healthcare to her patients, as well as prolong and improve the quality of their life.
