Metabolic Care Services
Our Metabolic Care services is provided through our Health Outcomes Centers (HOC) at the Shavano Park campus. HOC offer a multidisciplinary team that dedicates itself to the optimal management of the needs for pediatric, adolescent and adult patients who are seeking help with obesity and weight loss along with their related co-morbidities. By using multiple weight loss tools, we eliminate traditional barriers that patients face when receiving care from multiple specialties in different practices.
Our center gives patients access to clinicians in obesity medicine, bariatric surgery, nutrition, diabetes care and psychiatry in one location.
Our Center’s collaborative and diverse team of clinicians offer the full spectrum of weight loss options:
- Medical options, including lifestyle changes and FDA-approved weight loss medications
- Endoscopic approaches, including gastric balloons
- Minimally invasive surgical options, including Endoscopy, Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAPBAND®), or Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
We are committed to the long-term care of our patients and are dedicated to ensuring they achieve and maintain a healthy and improved quality of life. We have a steadfast dedication to treat every person with compassion and respect while providing the highest standard of clinical care.
A referral is required to be seen by our Metabolic Care Clinicians.
