Is the TLC star still performing surgery?

As Dr Now gets up there in years, many fans are still wondering whether or not he still practices surgery. In a nutshell, the answer is yes! Dr Now is still actively practicing surgery and even performs procedures that aren’t captured on the show. If you frequently tune into My 600-Lb Life, you can see him in action when a patient achieves their weight loss goals

As we previously reported, Dr Now seems to still be in great health and doesn’t seem to show signs of slowing down anytime soon. This is happy news for fans. As we noted above, many viewers tune in to hear what the doctor has to say.

People love Dr Now, but unfortunately, a recent Reddit poll that a lot of My 600-Lb Life fans revealed fans are mostly just interested in the drama. It seems like TLC knows this and this is why they keep creating spectacles on the show. Many My 600-Lb Life participants actually sued the show for emotional distress, including Gina Marie Krasley who passed away last summer.

Krasley and other former participants allege that the show forces them to eat absurd amounts of food in order to fit the show’s narrative.

  1. I watch the show because I love to see people gain their life back,not the made up drama.There is more than enough drama just trying to change your life and get back your health.The particapents have enough stress on their lives just trying to change their lives for the better.I hope they stop with made up stuff and let the people just tell their story.
