JourneyLite Physicians is pleased to announce that Dr. James Augusta is joining our team of experienced weight loss surgeons!
Dr. Augusta grew up in Utah and moved to the midwest to attend the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine. He then pursued a general surgery residency at Grandview Hospital in Dayton and was Chief Surgical Resident there. During his residency, Dr. Augusta did a 6 week mini-fellowship with Dr. Curry and decided at that point he wanted to primarily focus on weight loss surgery. “The quality of care, efficiency, and high degree of patient satisfaction at JourneyLite left a long-term impression on me that definitely influenced my career path” reports Dr. Augusta.
After completing his term as Chief Surgical Resident, Dr. Augusta joined Kettering Bariatrics, where he served as an attending surgeon for 3 years.
Dr. Augusta focuses his practice on gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, revisional weight loss surgery, and general surgery. He is a member of The American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons, and the American Osteopathic Association.
Dr. Augusta is in-network with almost all payors and also accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and CareSource.
