Our mission is to inform and empower people to improve their lives using the tool of weight loss surgery.


The fight against obesity is never easy. Excess body weight exacts a toll in terms of health consequences, job performance, job opportunities, judgment from others and overall well-being. People work hard to escape the cycle of weight gain and weight loss, with little success and great frustration. Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, offers better odds of breaking this cycle and bringing the obesity problem under control. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 903-593-0230.
