The Bariatric Medical Institute of Texas (BMI of Texas) today announced San Antonio weight loss surgeons Terive Duperier, MD, FACS, and Michael Seger, MD, FACS, were once again recognized by Scene in S.A. magazine in the magazine’s annual listing of the city’s top doctors. Dr. Jenny Seger, who heads up the practice’s medical weight loss program, was also recognized as a “Best of 2012” doctor in the Bariatric Medicine and Family Medicine categories. Selected to the list based on recommendations from their peers, “S.A. Doctors: Best of 2012” appears in the January 2012 issue of Scene in S.A.
Scene in S.A. magazine staff sent surveys to physicians in San Antonio, asking them to recommend to whom they would refer their family members. From the responses received, the magazine developed the 2012 list which appeared in its January 2012 issue. The BMI of Texas doctors have repeatedly been recognized by their peers, dating back the awards’ inception in 2005.
“Being recognized by our peers in the bariatric surgery and bariatric medicine categories is a tremendous honor,” said Dr. Mickey Seger. “Our goal at BMI of Texas is to help our patients lead healthier lives – and we can help them accomplish this in a variety of ways. We know that obesity is a multi-factorial disease associated with multiple serious medical problems. It’s influenced by the environment and at BMI of Texas, we have a comprehensive program to help people get their weight off and keep it off, leading to a much healthier lifestyle.”
BMI of Texas is committed to helping patients achieve success in their battle against obesity utilizing a variety of proven weight loss methods. BMI of Texas helps patients achieve their weight loss goals through various surgical procedures including gastric bypass, lap band and gastric sleeve, or through its medical weight loss program. Patients interested in weight loss surgery attend a free, educational seminar to learn about the various types of weight loss surgery procedures, and then 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.
BMI of Texas’ medical weight loss program is designed for patients who want a non-surgical approach to losing weight as well as patients who need to lose weight before undergoing weight loss surgery. As part of its comprehensive program, BMI of Texas offers an on-site dietitian for nutritional counseling and hosts support groups where post-op patients can discuss a wide variety of issues, such as relationships and dietary concerns. BMI of Texas is one of the only practices in the nation that performs fluoroscopic assisted band adjustments in the office. The practice’s Web site includes a calculator for prospective patients to calculate their BMI.
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.
