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.

Dr. Renza’s surgical and professional expertise includes laparoscopic bariatric operations (bypass and sleeve gastrectomy), fore-gut surgeries (anti-reflux procedures, hiatal hernia and paraesophageal hernia repairs), laparoscopic herniorraphy, larparoscopic and open colon surgery, cancer surgery and trauma. 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.
