Our approach

When deciding on bariatric surgery, it is very important to consider your lifestyle, age, health status and pre-existing conditions. At St. Luke's Health-The Woodlands Hospital, we take the time to carefully evaluate all of these factors and determine the best option for you. We provide highly personalized care with respect and compassion. We will recommend a procedure and plan that will enable life-long changes and move you toward improved health that enables you to live life as you want it.

As part of your procedure, our experts offer:

  • Medical clearance to ensure all risk factors and comorbidities are handled appropriately before surgery.
  • Nutritional counseling to create a solid foundation for successful weight loss after surgery.
  • Mental health consultation to address anxiety prior to surgery, support diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders and reduce the risk of future transfer dependencies.
  • Monthly dedicated support groups to provide emotional support and guidance from others going through the same experience.
  • Follow-up care after the procedure that is specially adapted to your health and the procedure you have performed.
