As the only surgical weight loss program in the Brazos Valley certified by the MBSAQIP, we’re proud to offer patients a safe, comfortable experience at St. Joseph Health Hospital in College Station.
It’s Not Just an Option. It’s an Opportunity.
Weight loss surgery is not just an option. It's an opportunity to start a new life. Obesity keeps you from what you enjoy, and no matter where you are in terms of personal milestones — starting a family, prevailing in your career, or enjoying retirement — bariatric surgery can enhance your quality of life.
Obesity is linked to 40+ diseases, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, and at least 13 types of cancer. Although bariatrics surgery is the most effective and lasting treatment for severe obesity, many patients don't even know they qualify for it.
There's no one-size-fits-all solution for weight loss.
Our regionally recognized weight loss surgical team in College Station has a proven track record, having performed thousands of surgeries, and we create a personalized treatment plan, from pre-op education to post-op care, for every patient with support groups and nutrition counseling included. Furthermore, we only recommend weight loss surgery if it's truly your best option.
Weight Loss Surgeries We Offer
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass is the most common weight loss procedure in the U.S., and it consistently results in steady weight loss and involves low risks with very few side effects.
Because the vertical sleeve gastrectomy does not involve bypass of the intestinal tract, this option is most desirable for patients suffering from nutritional deficiencies, Crohn's disease, or other conditions.
