Attention Corpus Christi Residents!!
It looks like our quest for local weight loss surgery options has been expanded. Dr. Lloyd Stegemann has launched a new website for his Better Weigh Center in the City of Corpus Christi, TX.
the Better Weigh Center will be the first and only bariatric practice dedicated 100% to the Corpus Christi area residents. What that means is that the physician Dr. Lloyd Stegemann will live in Corpus Christi and hold his Center of Excellence credentials in the city.
What that means for patients is their doctor will not be an out of towner but a local surgeon that is available at a moments notice. Additionally the new practice will be the first to conduct all three major weight loss surgery procedures, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and adjustable gastric banding at the Corpus Christi Medical Center.
But more importantly than having surgery done in the city is knowing theres someone here in the city that can help.
To get more information about the new surgeon visit him here;
About the Gastric Bypass
The Gastric Bypass is a procedure that basically consists of bypassing the most of the stomach (the hunger causing ones) and connecting a small newly created stomach pouch straight to the intestines. As a result patients lose drastic amounts of weight and can benefit from metabolic changes that could completely stop their type two diabetes.
About the Gastric Sleeve
The Gastric Sleeve instead opts to remove nearly 70-80% of the stomach but keeps the food traveling process in tact. This allows for more natural portions of food to be consumed, but may not have the same metabolic benefits as the gastric bypass.
About the Adjustable Gastric Band
Unlike the other two procedures the Adjustable Gastric Band mostly consists of a band that fits over the stomach. The band can be adjusted depending on the patients weight loss needs and does not require any changes to the patients natural anatomy, meaning their stomach stays in tact. The band works great for patients that are self motivated and have been able to lose some of the weight on their own but may have not been able to keep it off.
