We are The Surgical Specialists of Louisiana and The Surgical Specialists of Mississippi at WhyWeight.com, The Total Weight Loss Solution - a team of nine board-certified surgeons and support staff who specialize in comprehensive weight loss and wellness for life. Experience and breadth of services is what differentiates our group. We have the most experience in the region, and have helped over 7,000 people regain their health. And now, we offer weight loss solutions for every need – whether you’ve got to lose 15, 50, or 150 pounds.
Our team is sensitive to weight-related physical and emotional considerations, and our physicians and support staff are highly trained providers of the innovative and comprehensive approach to the unique weight loss and wellness needs of each patient. In 2000, we started as a highly experienced and successful Bariatric Surgery practice offering the effective gastric bypass and revolutionary laparoscopic gastric banding procedures. In 2009, we augmented our expertise to include the innovative incisionless procedures such as the POSE (Primary Obesity Surgery, Endolumenal) and expanded into non-surgical weight loss and wellness.
Today, we are excited to offer weight loss programs that suit the needs of every person interested in losing weight, improving their health, and enhancing the quality of their life.
