Thank you for your interest in Southside Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. This is the first step in your journey toward long-term weight loss, a healthier lifestyle, and improvement of many common medical ailments. You are not alone. Our center is helping people, like you, make extraordinary changes through surgical and non-surgical approaches, coupled with lifestyle support and education.
Morbid obesity is a debilitating disease of mind, body and spirit. This is why we’ve chosen a multi-disciplinary team approach in caring for each and every one of our patients. Our program is unlike any other you will come in contact with because of the staff you will encounter. We are committed to supporting your journey and celebrating your success at every phase. Our team consists of dedicated and experienced bariatric surgeons, nurses, dietitians, psychiatrists and physical therapists. We offer ongoing support groups and education, not only for our patients, but for our patients’ family members as well.
We offer a myriad of safe, effective, surgical options. Based upon your eating habits and current health status, we will tailor a surgical approach specifically for you that offers the safest and most effective results. For those who are not ready to consider surgery, we also offer medical weight loss as an option. Meeting with our treatment team will allow you to determine the best option for you.
If you do choose surgery to assist you in your journey to lose weight, it is extremely important that you understand that bariatric surgery is simply a tool towards achieving your goal to live a healthier lifestyle. Our most successful patients are committed to changing their daily lifestyle habits related to nutrition and exercise. Once you have made your decision and chosen your path to a heathier lifestyle, you will find a multitude of support from our staff, a comprehensive educational experience, full financial disclosure, and something you may not expect - new friends along the way.
Take Your Life Back.
You Are Not Alone.
I look forward to meeting you when you are ready to discuss this journey together.
