Your Weight Loss Surgery Options at BMI of Texas
At BMI of Texas we offer both medical (mwl) and surgical weight management. We have a solution for patients needing to lose hundreds of pounds or just a few. Our surgical patients benefit by participating in the medical programs. We have found that our results at 2 years after surgery are amplified dramatically when our patients are in the combined program.
How to Decide What Operation is Best for You
Choosing a weight loss surgery is a very personal decision. Drs. Seger, Duperier, and Englehardt are very experienced weight loss surgeons who continue to perform all types of weight loss surgery because they all work! One operation may be better for one person than another; however the most important thing that determines long term success is YOU! These are extremely powerful tools that will lead to massive weight loss if used correctly.
There are many different things that factor into a decision about which weight loss surgery to have. You should choose the operation that best fits your personality. Some patients choose based on surgical risk or reversibility. Others choose based on the amount of expected weight loss or the chances that a particular operation will cure diabetes or reflux/heartburn.
We want the decision to be made by you after hearing all the information given to you in a non-biased fashion.
