Information on Houston Lap-Band and Gastric Bypass Surgeons

Houston weight loss surgeons offer a number of different procedures to treat the effects of obesity. Forms of weight loss surgery Houston weight loss surgeons perform include Lap-Band, gastric bypass and others.

Many of the more commonly performed bariatric surgery procedures fall under the umbrella of restrictive surgery, or surgery to restrict the amount of food the stomach will hold. This includes popular procedures such as Lap-Band and other types of gastric banding.

Gastric bypass is another form of weight loss surgery Houston bariatric surgeons often perform. In this procedure the path food normally takes is rerouted so that a portion of the stomach is "bypassed."

Traveling to Houston, Texas (TX) for Bariatric Surgery

Weight loss surgery patients looking for a qualified weight loss surgeon and an interesting place to recuperate will undoubtedly find both waiting in Houston. The city of Houston is ripe with remembrances of the Texas Revolution that separated Texas from Mexico, including the historic site of the Battle of San Jacinto that ended the Revolution. Located only minutes from downtown Houston, this battleground is listed as a National Landmark Historic Site. The memorial monument that stands there is dedicated to the heroes of the Battle of San Jacinto, especially the general for which the city is named, Sam Houston. It is taller than the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., by fifteen feet and is the tallest monument of its kind in the world.

Also located within the San Jacinto State Historic Site is the Battleship Texas, the first battleship memorial museum established in the United States. The Battleship Texas participated in both world wars and was considered the most powerful warship afloat, using anti-aircraft guns and controlled gunfire. Today it is a National Historic Engineering Landmark because of its reciprocating marine steam engines. With one of the most historic sites of the Texas Revolution located in Houston, a visit for weight loss surgery is bound to be an exciting trip.
