Selecting the Best Bariatric Surgeon in South Texas for Your Weight Loss Surgery

How to Choose a South Texas Bariatric Surgeon Who Is Right for You

Committing to weight loss surgery is a big decision. It’s a promise to yourself and those around you that you want to make a positive, healthy change in your life by losing excess weight.

But perhaps even more important than making the decision to have weight loss surgery is your choice of a doctor to perform that surgery. Here in South Texas, you have many options for bariatric surgeons. Knowing the right questions to ask before selecting a South Texas-based bariatric surgeon can ensure you are satisfied with both the surgery and the results.

Ask the following questions prior to choosing a weight loss surgeon for your procedure:

  • What are your qualifications?
  • How many of these procedures have you performed, and with what success rate?
  • Can I speak to past patients about their experience with you?
  • Will you continue to care for me as a patient following the weight loss surgery?
  • Do you offer patient support groups?
  • In addition to the surgery I have elected, what other weight loss surgeries do you perform?
