Our Vision

Redefining healthcare by creating meaningful relationships and experiences with our patients and the community in order to overcome obesity and metabolic disease fostering improved health and a better quality of life.

If you are like most people, you are probably extremely frustrated and tired of dealing with excess weight. You have probably tried every diet out there and perhaps had some success but just have not been able to achieve long term success. Our comprehensive program will give you the tools you need to lose the weight you want and to keep it off.

Because every patient is unique, we strive to design a customized program to meet the needs of each individual. Having the expertise of an Obesity Medicine Specialist, Dr. Jenny Seger, we have the unique opportunity to provide more complete weight management and wellness services than those which are available in other practices.

We are dedicated to creating an enduring partnership with patients in order to ensure their long-term success. We are committed to providing such care in a supportive, compassionate, and guilt-free environment.

When it comes to Texas obesity surgery, it is our goal to not only help you achieve your weight loss goals but to improve your overall health and quality of life. We look forward to partnering with you on your journey to a healthier you!
