Personal Statement

I have always loved surgery -- ever since I was a medical student. I came to see that laparoscopic and now robotic surgery can help my patients feel better, faster, with less pain. It gives me joy to help my patients feel better through weight loss, mindfulness, and healthier living. I develop a personal relationship with many of my patients, and that makes all the hard work worth it!

Additional Information

Elizabeth Renza, MD, FACS, is a board-certified surgeon and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. She has been practicing in the Philadelphia area since 2011. She specializes in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. She also performs general surgery operations. She previously practiced at Aria Health in Northeast Philadelphia (2011 to 2015) where she helped to develop the bariatric program. She worked at Drexel University/Hahnemann University Hospital from June 2015 to the hospital's closure in the summer of 2019. Dr. Renza served as the Medical Director for the Center for Surgical Weight Loss at Hahnemann University, and she has been active in surgical and medical education since she completed her own training.

Dr. Renza’s surgical and professional expertise includes laparoscopic bariatric operations (gastric bypass and gastric sleeve), fore-gut surgeries (anti-reflux procedures, hiatal hernia and paraesophageal hernia repairs), and laparoscopic and robotic herniorrhaphy. She also performs surgeries with the DaVinci Robotic System.

After completing her general surgery residency in 2006, Dr. Renza spent four years on active duty in the United States Army as a general and trauma surgeon. She deployed with the 82nd Airborne Division to Afghanistan in 2007 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. While deployed, she performed surgeries at a forward surgical unit as well as in a combat support hospital. She cared for injured troops and treated local civilians as part of a humanitarian mission of the regional command.

After her service, Dr. Renza completed a one-year fellowship in minimally invasive surgery and bariatrics at New York Medical College.
