About Dr. Chand

Biography

Dr. Chand received his medical degree from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. He completed a residency in general surgery and also an advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic fellowship at The Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Chand had been on staff since 2003 and served as director, surgical endoscopy, director, advanced surgical training and associate program director of the surgical residency program at The Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Chand also serves on numerous leadership committees with the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and has recently served as president, Ohio Society of Bariatric Surgery from 2010 – 2012.

Dr. Chand is a funded investigator who led research studies at The Cleveland Clinic focusing on minimally invasive techniques in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders, metabolic surgery, and endoluminal therapies. A medical innovator and inventor, he holds multiple patents on endoscopic devices in the field of obesity care and gastrointestinal surgery. Dr. Chand also is credited with developing new technology in Barrett’s ablation and alternative nutritional access devices and techniques. He has authored and contributed to over seventy peer reviewed journals and publications in the field of advanced laparoscopy and endoscopy and has recently published a book on an evidence-based approach to minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Chand was rated by U.S. News & World Report as a top surgeon in 2012.
