John Raheb, DO, FACS
Dr. Raheb was born and raised in Brooklyn New York. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Muhlenberg College in Allentown Pennsylvania, and a master’s degree from Rutgers in New Jersey.
After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completing an internship, he entered the Navy and served as a Flight Surgeon for the Navy and Marine Corps. After completing his general surgery residency at Wilford Hall – University Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, TX. , he served as a general surgeon and leader. He completed a fellowship in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Portsmouth, Virginia.
Inspired by the family’s general practitioner, he always knew that he would be a physician and soon realized that surgery interested him most.
“Although I still enjoy general surgery, the rewards of bariatric surgery are unique. The patients are a very special and motivated group. I greatly enjoy the long-term relationship while sharing in their challenges and victories.”
While Dr. Raheb is trained in all areas of general surgery, his areas of clinical interest include:
Bariatric and weight loss surgery
Advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery
Data based quality care and improvement of the surgical patient
A sailing family at heart, we have embraced the wonderful natural beauty of Colorado. It is amazing to be skiing at 10,000 feet on a mountain and sailing at 9,000 feet on a lake!
