Bariatric Surgery: A Life Changing Choice!
Welcome to Mid-Louisiana Surgical Specialists where we look forward to giving you the tools to enjoy a healthier, happier life through weight loss surgery. Over 30% of the population of Louisiana is obese and it has become a fully-fledged, nationwide epidemic.
That's why we consider bariatric surgery to be a truly life changing decision. It is the only effective and proven long-term weight loss solution available to those suffering from obesity and related diseases such as type-2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sleep apnea. To get you started, here are some links to resources on this website that will help you decide if obesity surgery is right for you:
Here at MLSS we offer three specialized weight loss surgery procedures with proven safety and effectiveness: Gastric Bypass, Gastric Banding (Lap Band and Realize Band), and Gastric Sleeve. None of these procedures is a one size fits all, so we suggest that you sign up for one of our free monthly seminars or call our office to learn more about the procedures. You, your primary physician and your bariatric surgeon together will decide which surgical procedure is right for you. Over 95% of our procedures are performed laparoscopically (minimally invasive) which means that you will experience less pain, less bleeding, a shorter hospital stay and a shorter recovery time.
Mid-Louisiana Surgical Specialists is comprised of a dedicated team of professionals to help you along your weight loss journey through bariatric surgery. We are passionate about our work because we help people change their lives every day. Our affiliation with the world-class Christus St. Francis Cabrini Hospital further solidifies our dedication to safety and comfort.
