Panhandle Weight Loss Center is unique in that we offer both medical and surgical weight loss options. Each patient has different weight loss needs and we offer multiple options to help meet those needs. We offer a comprehensive approach to weight loss which involves metabolic testing, nutritional counseling, tailored exercise program, nutritional supplements, and bariatric surgery to those who qualify.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) or Gastric Sleeve Resection, is a type of weight loss surgery that decreases the size of the stomach. It increases weight loss by limiting the amount of food one can intake, making you feel fuller sooner. Click here to learn more.

The Biliary Pancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (Duodenal Switch) is an established weight loss procedure which provides both excellent long term weight loss and long term resolution of comorbid conditions. This operation provides patients with a higher degree of satisfaction than a standard Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or purely restrictive operation because they are able to eat larger meals. This operation provides the highest degree of malaabsorption and therefore the greatest excess weight loss compared to other operations. Click here to learn more.
The ORBERA Balloon is a soft, expandable intragastric (inside the stomach) device that is temporarily inserted into the stomach. It provides a six month kick start to healthy weight loss and is a perfect solution if you are looking to lose up to 20-35 pounds of excess weight but are fearful of surgery, fed up with diets, pills, and other weight loss programs that just haven't worked for you. During those six months, you will work the Panhandle Weight Loss team on a personalized plan to maximize your results on your weight loss journey. Click here to learn more.
