Our Approach

The Weight Loss Center at Central Texas Medical Center helps people who have been diagnosed as clinically or morbidly obese to achieve significant, healthy weight loss. Through cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures using the da Vinci® robotic-assisted system, patients of this service will prevent or reverse the serious diseases and conditions associated with obesity.

We offer multiple weight loss surgeries, including gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and LAP-Band using the da Vinci® system, which means you benefit from smaller and fewer incisions, less stress and strain to your body and faster healing and recovery times.

Our dedicated team of specialists includes the region's leading da Vinci® surgeon, primary care physicians, registered dietitians, clinical counselors, wellness coaches and many more committed and compassionate individuals who are here to support you on your journey.

Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery

  • Following surgery, most patients lose weight rapidly and continue to do so for 18-24 months. Approximately 75% of these patients will lose and keep off 50-80% of their excess weight.
  • Life-threatening medical conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, elevated cholesterol, gastro-esophageal reflux disease and sleep apnea, commonly improve and often go away after successful surgery.
  • Significantly improved energy levels for daily activity foster self-confidence and a healthier outlook on life.
