More Information about our program

We are a “Patient Education Program” focused primarily on bariatrics and the health risks of obesity.   We educate perspective patients about the associated short and long term risks, benefits and costs associated with morbid obesity and related comorbidities.  Based in Houston, Texas we have grown to an extremely strong national and international presence as an authority on bariatric surgery.  Our program began in October 2003 at the request of a local hospital but has grown to include a network of healthcare providers, support groups and informational organizations and contributing to the same common goal.  By working to provide the best possible outcome for the patient, we have capitalized on the tremendous marketing opportunity that our search engine and general web presence provides.
