That’s why our program is led by trusted, skilled surgeon Dr. Scott Stowers, who has performed over 2,000 bariatric procedures serving Dallas, Fort Worth Amarillo, Abilene, Wichita Falls and across the country. As Medical Director, Dr. Stowers has led an experienced team—some of whom are patients as well and understand personally, the journey through weightloss surgery. So from your first consultation to every follow-up visit, you can rest assured that everyone at My Bariatric Solutions has your success in mind.
Understanding Bariatric Surgery
If you’ve been unsuccessful losing weight through traditional means and currently have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, bariatric surgery might be a perfect solution for you. “Bariatric surgery is typically an option people consider when other efforts to lose weight have failed,” Dr. Stowers said. MyBariatricSolutions.com has a BMI calculator for your convenience as well as an online seminar to help further explain your options. We also have monthly online support groups, an interactive Facebook community as well as a new discussion forum that share your concerns and accomplishments.
My Bariatric Solutions offers three types of bariatric procedures: Lap-Band, Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y). All three are considered permanent means to helping you reduce your food intake so you can finally lose weight, keep it off and regain control of your health. Dr. Stowers will help you choose the right procedure for you and your life.
Whether you live in the DFW Metroplex and surrounding cities or outside Texas, as many of their patients do, you can depend on My Bariatric Solutions to be there for you every step of the way. For patients who may not be able to travel to one of their locations for lap-band adjustments, My Bariatric Solutions has set the precedent for patient care with their unique, only one-of-its-kind in the country, Lap-Band Wagon.
“Lap-Band patients require routine adjustments to reach and maintain optimal weightloss goals,” said Dr. Stowers. Since September 2011, the Lap-Band Wagon has been helping patients in outlying communities obtain convenient care. The Lap-Band Wagon brings a team of medical professionals (2 of whom are patients) to you! Patients can view the schedule on our Lap-Band Wagon page, on the Lap-Band Wagon in person or by calling our office.
“We also have such a successful and unique after-care program that patients transfer to our program so that we can take over their after care,” Dr. Stowers said. The after-care program is led by Bariatrician Dr. Obi Chukwuocha, who is dual board-certified in family and bariatric medicine. “Dr. Obi’s experience and education in the field of bariatric medicine, not to mention his passion for his patients, is unsurpassed. He’s a key component to why our patients are so successful and why our program exceeds the national average for weight loss.
Making Bariatric Surgery a Reality
My Bariatric Solutions’ dedicated staff will help you explore the options for paying for your surgery. Many times insurance companies recognize the genuine health risks morbidly obese people face and will cover all or portions of your surgery and follow-up care.
For patients without insurance coverage, financing options are available for those who qualify. “When you stop to factor in the costs you’re currently incurring each month for medications to control health problems, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, as well as food prices and doctor visits, the cost of weight-loss surgery begins to make a lot more sense,” said Dr. Stowers. “When you factor in your improved quality of life associated with a healthy body weight, it begins to make even more sense.”
