Our Specialty Services and Locations

Bariatric Clinic

At Valley Baptist, we know that living with excess weight can hold you back from living your life to the fullest. The Valley Baptist Surgical and Medical Weight Loss Program offers several surgical options, including laparoscopic gastric sleeve and laparoscopic gastric bypass.

And our weight loss services extend beyond top-notch surgical skill. Empathetic staff members who have been patients themselves are here to allay your fears, while our knowledgeable office staff can answer any questions you have related to insurance. We personally guide patients through the entire process, from pre-surgery requirements, to the surgery itself, lifestyle changes and support groups.

Learn more about our bariatric clinic at one of our free seminars, held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Harlingen. View our upcoming seminar dates. For more information, contact Program Director Dawn Rodriguez by email, or at (956) 389-6896.
