Jeffrey A. Quinlan

CEO & Editor-in-Chief


Jeffrey Quinlan is the CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Bariatric Surgery Source (“BSS”), having founded the organization in 2008. Prior to starting BSS, Jeff spent 10 years as an employee benefits consultant at Cigna Healthcare, a global health service company, and The Precept Group, a national employee benefits consulting, administration, and retirement plan services firm.  Jeff’s focus as a consultant was data-backed workforce health improvement and wellness initiatives to control health care costs and increase employee productivity. This focus is what sparked his interest in bariatric surgery. He served on the Board of Directors for the Northern California Employee Benefits Council and was a frequent speaker and continuing education instructor for the Northern California Human Resources Association.

Jeff spent the first two years at BSS researching and writing the equivalent of a 400 page medical textbook on bariatric surgery. After completing the book, he recruited top professionals across the bariatric industry to review and amend each chapter. He then reorganized and published the content as free, publicly available web pages on BSS. Since initial publication, he has continued to oversee the research, review, and publication of content relating to all aspects of bariatric surgery.

Jeff received a B.S. in Business Administration, graduating Cum Laude from the Orfalea College of Business at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
