Weight loss surgery

Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is performed on patients with obesity. There are several types of bariatric procedures, but all focus on making modifications to the digestive system with the goal of significant weight loss.

Advanced bariatric treatments

At our new center in Atascosa, you can access an individualized care plan designed to help you reach your weight-loss goals.

Methodist Hospital Atascosa, in partnership with Methodist Hospital Metropolitan, offers surgical weight-loss options to the residents of Atascosa County. Through this partnership, you can undergo advanced procedures performed by board-certified surgeons.
