Bariatric surgeons Terive Duperier, MD, and Michael Seger, MD help patients achieve weight loss goals through a variety of bariatric surgery procedures at the Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas

(PRWEB) April 7, 2010 -- The Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas (BMI of Texas), which specializes in a variety of weight loss surgery procedures in Texas, today announced its schedule of upcoming seminars for people considering bariatric surgery. The free seminars, conducted by two of the most experienced bariatric surgeons in San Antonio, serve as an important educational tool to guide obesity surgery patients on their journey towards better health.

During these seminars, BMI of Texas bariatric surgeons Terive Duperier, MD, and Michael Seger, MD, discuss various obesity surgery options, answer questions, and offer patients support and guidance for their weight-loss journey. Many insurance plans cover weight loss surgery, and BMI of Texas patient concierges are available during the seminars to discuss attendees’ insurance coverage. The free seminars, being held in San Antonio, begin on April 10, 2010 and continue through July 15, 2010. To view a complete seminar schedule and register online, visit the Website at bmioftexas.com.

"Numerous studies have proven the efficacy of weight loss surgery. With new advances in bariatric surgery procedures, it’s important for anyone considering weight loss surgery to fully understand the various types of surgeries available,” said Dr. Duperier. “At BMI of Texas, we require all prospective patients to attend a seminar and learn about the variety of weight loss surgeries we perform. In addition, attendees hear from our post-op patients, who share their personal experiences and weight loss journey so that potential patients will have a thorough understanding of the surgical process.”

BMI of Texas, located in San Antonio's Medical Center area, helps patients achieve their weight loss goals through various surgical procedures including gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy. Additionally, the surgeons perform a full spectrum of advanced laparoscopic procedures, including laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (anti-reflux surgery), laparoscopic colon surgery, laparoscopic pancreatic surgery, and laparoscopic hernia surgeries.

BMI of Texas assists patients throughout their entire weight loss journey. After attending the free, educational seminar, patients are then assigned a patient advocate to help coordinate the extensive paperwork and insurance stipulations necessary for surgical intervention. Post-operatively, the doctors continue to follow their patients to ensure long-term weight loss success. 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. In addition, the practice’s Web site includes a calculator for prospective patients to calculate their BMI at www.bmioftexas.com/default/bmi-calculator.

Dr. Seger and Dr. Duperier were recently recognized by the American Society for Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery for high-quality care in bariatric surgery when the ASMBS renewed their designation as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence.® The designation recognizes surgical programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery.
