General & Bariatric Surgical Associates
St. Joseph welcomes General & Bariatric Surgical Associates!
General & Bariatric Surgical Associates (GBSA) is a group of highly trained professionals, all of whom have consistently excellent results. All of our physicians are board certified and are Fellows of the American College of Surgeons. GBSA has been serving the Brazos Valley for more than 19 years, always with our patients' best interests in mind.
Weight Loss Surgery can be a scary venture and our team strives to make this process as comfortable as possible. Over the past 7 years our practice has taken a very special interest in tackling the disease of obesity by offering the gold standard for surgical weight loss, the LAP-BAND System and Gastric Sleeve procedure, all with very low complication rates and no fatalities. Our goals are to identify patients who will benefit from Bariatric surgery, provide consistent error free application of surgical techniques, and effective postoperative care with subsequent clinical outcomes that far exceed recognized standards.
What is Obesity?
Obesity results from the excessive accumulation of fat that exceeds the body's skeletal and physical standards. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), an increase in 20 percent or more above your ideal body weight is the point at which excess weight becomes a health risk. Today 97 million Americans, more than one-third of the adult population, are overweight or obese. An estimated 5 to 10 million of those are considered morbidly obese.
