Surgical Weight Loss

Weight loss surgery is the start of a new life according to our philosophy. Obesity keeps you from what you enjoy. No matter where you are in terms of personal milestones—starting a family, prevailing in your career or enjoying retirement—bariatric surgery can enhance quality of life. Unfortunately, without change, obesity can bring health risks such as diabetes, joint pain and even a shorten life expectancy.

Bariatric surgery has proven successful for decades, and for many, the benefits far offset the risks. It is important to select a surgeon with experience in all specialized procedures to find what is best for you. Our team, comprised of experienced surgeons, are esteemed practitioners who are recognized for their accomplishments in the field of bariatrics.

You should consider your lifestyle, health and existing conditions when deciding on bariatric surgery. Together, we can carefully evaluate circumstances to determine an option. Read our patient testimonies for the first-hand insights of people, from a variety of backgrounds, who decided surgery was right for them.

Success rate, insurance qualification, surgery eligibility and payment are important when making a decision. Given the complexity of these factors, we should discuss the options together. Call us at 979-731-6050 for more information. By taking this initial step, you are moving closer towards a life without limits.

Our Surgical Procedures:

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Of all the bariatric surgery procedures available, laparoscopic Gastric Bypass is the one most often used in the U.S. This is because it consistently results in steady weight loss and involves low risks with very few side effects.

Gastric Sleeve

Because the vertical sleeve gastrectomy does not involve any bypass of the intestinal tract, this option is most desirable for patients suffering from any nutritional deficiency, Crohn's disease and other conditions.
