San Antonio's Top Doctors
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) January 23, 2009
The Bariatric Medical Institute (BMI) of Texas (http://www.bmioftexas.com) today announced its two founding partners, local bariatric surgeons Terive Duperier and Michael Seger, were once again named "Top Doctors" in Scene in S.A. magazine's fourth annual survey of San Antonio's top doctors.
Scene in S.A. magazine staff sent surveys to 4,000 practicing physicians in San Antonio, asking them to recommend to whom they would refer their friends, family and patients. The magazine received 959 physician nominations in 80 specialties. From the responses received, the magazine developed the list of "San Antonio's Top Doctors" which appeared in its November 2008 issue.
"It's an honor and privilege for us to work in San Antonio alongside so many fine physicians," said Dr. Seger. "Being recognized by our peers for our surgical skills and patient care is an incredible honor and we look forward to helping our mutual patients with their weight loss goals and healthier lives in the future."
BMI of Texas assists patients throughout their entire weight loss journey. After attending a free, educational seminar and learning about the various types of weight loss surgery procedures, patients are assigned a patient advocate to help coordinate the often-confusing paperwork and insurance stipulations necessary for surgical intervention. Post-operatively, the doctors continue to follow their patients to ensure long-term weight loss success.
Located in San Antonio's Medical Center area, BMI of Texas helps patients achieve their weight loss goals through various surgical procedures including gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy. Additionally, the surgeons perform a full spectrum of advanced laparoscopic procedures, including laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (anti-reflux surgery), laparoscopic colon surgery, laparoscopic pancreatic surgery, and laparoscopic hernia surgeries.
