Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass, Lap Band, and SIPS
Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Bypass, Lap Band, and SIPS surgeries are all conducted in San Antonio. We pride ourselves in providing the best possible outcomes and the choice of facility plays a vital role in overall success rates. Southwest General Hospital, South Texas Surgical Institute, and Metropolitan Methodist Hospital are ideal facilities for many reasons:
- A surgery-only hospital ensures lower infection rates
- Fast triage if troubles arise as opposed to over-crowded impersonal emergency rooms
- One-stop service for all your weight loss surgery needs
- Unmatched nurse to patient ratios
- Private care
Aside from the choice of facility and choice of surgeon, the next most important variable in your long-term success is a comprehensive aftercare program. We are proud to support you with a team approach that is unmatched by any program in the area. This is our proudest asset that we have chosen to deliver to Corpus Christi. Our aftercare program includes monthly support groups and an online support group. Texas Bariatric Specialists has performed over 7,000 weight loss surgeries and is committed to its patients for life.
