Bariatric Surgery

Weight Loss Services

According to our philosophy, weight loss procedures are the start of a new life. Obesity can keep you from doing what you enjoy. No matter where you are in terms of personal milestones—starting a family, excelling in your career, or enjoying retirement—surgical and non-surgical bariatric options can greatly enhance your quality of life.

Bariatric procedures have 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, including non-surgical options, to find what is best for you. Our team is comprised of experienced surgeons who are recognized for their accomplishments in the field.

You should consider your lifestyle, health, and existing conditions. Together, we can carefully evaluate circumstances to determine the best options for you. Read our patient testimonials for firsthand insights of people from a variety of backgrounds who decided a bariatric procedure 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. Attend one of our informational seminars at St. Luke’s Health–The Woodlands Hospital or Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. By taking the initial step, you are moving closer toward a life without limits.
