What Makes Us Different?

No obligation insurance verification and low interest financing. Let our insurance expert review your policy.

Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center has been recognized as a fully accredited Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). ACS designates as MBSAQIP Centers only those programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes for weight loss surgery. The rate of complications for MBSAQIP Centers is extremely low.

We also offer surgery to revise or reverse previous bariatric procedures.
