ABOUT THE PROVIDER
Dr. Manieri is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. His post-graduate clinical training began at ChristianaCare Health System in Newark, Delaware, where he pursued a clinical rotation internship, before later completing a general surgical residency. Dr. Manieri’s clinical training concluded with a bariatric and minimally invasive surgical fellowship at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia.
He is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons.
Dr. Manieri practices at the Beebe Center for Weight Loss Surgery, located in Georgetown, as well as at the Beebe General Surgery Center, located in Lewes. Patients who opt to pursue bariatric surgery undergo an extensive planning and preparation process, often taking place over a period of several months. Following surgery, bariatric patients continue seeing their surgeon on a regular basis for approximately one year, and sometimes even longer. Dr. Manieri values the opportunity to build meaningful relationships and bond with his patients, as these processes take place.
“The decision to undergo bariatric surgery is a team decision, made by the patient, the surgeon and the staff at Beebe. I spend a lot of time with my patients to discuss their challenges, answer their questions, and guide them in making important healthcare decisions,” said Dr. Manieri. “It’s important for patients to understand the surgical process, including what needs to be done to prepare, what to expect on the day of their procedure, what their recovery process will look like, and what they can expect, long-term. Most importantly, patients must understand that surgery is a tool to help them reach their goals, along with many key lifestyle changes. Education and support are important pieces of my work as a surgeon.”
