Surgical Weight Management support groups are a great way to stay motivated, share challenges and successes with fellow patients, and optimize weight loss and healthy living.  Both current and prospective patients are invited to attend.  Our support group meetings are facilitated by health care professionals, including our bariatric nurses, registered dietitians, licensed mental health providers, or physicians.

Support Groups are held at Physicians Medical Center located at 218 Corporate Drive in Houma, Louisiana 70360.

Success Stories, Seminars, BMI Calculator

Success Stories

Our surgeons have been performing bariatric surgery since 2003 with a success rate that is well above the national average. We believe in long-term patient support and hold monthly support groups for past and future clients.


We invite you to attend an informative seminar to learn more about our bariatric surgery program. Our seminars are free, pre-registration is not required, and we encourage you to bring family and friends with you to the seminar.

BMI Calculator

While only a qualified surgeon can determine if you are a candidate for weight-loss surgery, you may be a candidate for bariatric surgery if you have a BMI of 40, or a BMI 30-35 or higher with one or more obesity-related conditions.
