BMI of Texas Makes San Antonio Weight Loss Surgery More Affordable; Offers Discount for Self-Pay Patients for Bariatric Surgery Procedures

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) September 04, 2013

The Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas (BMI of Texas) today announced a $1,000 discount for self-pay patients having weight loss surgery, including the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, performed by one of its surgeons before January 1, 2014. The promotion applies only to self-pay patients and the surgical procedure (gastric bypass, lap band or gastric sleeve) must take place on or before December 31, 2013.

“For self-pay patients, the cost of weight loss surgery can be a significant factor in the patient’s decision to undergo surgery or not. We hope that offering this discount will enable some of our self-pay patients to afford the weight loss surgery procedure they choose – and help them lead a healthier life,” said Dr. Terive Duperier.

BMI of Texas surgeons include Dr. Duperier, Dr. Mickey Seger and Dr. Richard Englehardt. Dr. Duperier and Dr. Seger are designated an ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence and have been repeatedly recognized by Scene in S.A. magazine in the magazine’s annual listing of the city’s top doctors. Dr. Jenny Seger, who heads up the practice’s medical weight loss program, was also recognized as a “Best of 2012” doctor in the Bariatric Medicine and Family Medicine categories.

BMI of Texas is committed to helping patients achieve success in their battle against obesity utilizing a variety of proven weight loss methods including gastric bypass, lap band, gastric sleeve and revision surgery, or through its medical weight loss program. Patients interested in weight loss surgery attend a free, educational seminar to learn about the various types of weight loss surgery procedures, and then are assigned a patient advocate to help coordinate the often-confusing paperwork and insurance stipulations necessary for surgical intervention. Post-operatively, the doctors continue to follow their patients to ensure long-term weight loss success. BMI of Texas is one of the few bariatric surgical centers in Texas offering da Vinci robot-assisted weight loss surgery, the most advanced technique to perform bariatric surgery.

As part of its comprehensive program, BMI of Texas offers an on-site dietitian for nutritional counseling and hosts support groups where post-op patients can discuss a wide variety of issues, such as relationships and dietary concerns. BMI of Texas is one of the only practices in the nation that performs fluoroscopic assisted band adjustments in the office. The practice’s Web site includes a calculator for prospective patients to calculate their BMI. BMI of Texas’ medical weight loss program is designed for patients who want a non-surgical approach to losing weight as well as patients who need to lose weight before undergoing weight loss surgery.

Additionally, the surgeons perform a full spectrum of minimally invasive procedures, including parathyroid surgery, laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (anti-reflux surgery), laparoscopic pancreatic surgery, and laparoscopic hernia surgeries.
