Bariatric Surgery Expert in Houston, TX
Welcome to Northwest Endo Surgical
The life-changing decision to overcome obesity through bariatric surgery requires expert care to be effective. Dr. Matthew St. Laurent is a leading Houston-area bariatric surgeon who understands the unique needs of obese patients and will treat them with a sympathetic and non-judgmental attitude.
Obese patients not only struggle with diminished self-esteem, but many also have health conditions related to being severely overweight. Over time, dealing with these problems can seem overwhelming, which is why many people turn to bariatric surgery. The good news is that bariatric surgery can be an effective way to not only lose weight, but also improve your health and quality of life.
Many people have difficulty losing weight because they are unable to control their appetites. Several forms of bariatric surgery are available; however, all of them reduce the amount of food required to feel full. As a result, you’ll be better able to control your appetite and can shed pounds slowly and steadily over the course of several months. This method of losing weight is far more effective than “crash” diets that allow you to lose weight quickly, as bariatric surgery patients are also more likely to keep their weight off long term.
