Dr. Charles Procter, Jr
Dr. Procter has been focusing on minimally invasive approaches to bariatric surgery for his entire career. Having performed the first robotic-assisted cholecystectomy in the state in 2008, he later became one of the first bariatric surgeons to adopt the fully robotic approach to the sleeve gastrectomy, roux-en Y gastric bypass, and duodenal switch. He has been performing bariatric surgery since 2007, and started Beltline Bariatric and Surgical Group in 2016.
He is married to a lovely wife and has three wonderful boys with whom he enjoys golfing. In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Procter promotes weight loss surgery awareness on TLC’s “Family by the Ton.”

Each patient shapes her and motivates her through their personal experiences and their eagerness to combat sickness and disease. She strives to be the change that she wants to see in the world each day. She empowers and encourages every individual life that crosses her path, and she strives to teach our patients about living a better life through health, nutrition, fitness, and spirituality to ensure they have the best quality of life after surgery. In her best effort, she will provide the tools and reinforcements for patients to achieve all goals and aspirations that they set forth for themselves.
She was led to this practice to achieve great things and grow in so many ways than one. She is beyond words and emotions to work with a doctor with so much drive, determination, selflessness, and love for others and a staff that makes an office feel like home. She will continue to grow and learn with Dr. Charles Procter, Jr. and the staff of Beltline Bariatric and Surgery Group as long as her heart is content.
