Bariatric Weight Loss Program

New Life Now Weight Loss Surgical Program

Treating the Disease, Obesity

With an estimated 1.3 billion overweight adults worldwide — 600 million of whom are classified as obese — excessive body weight has become a contributing factor in premature death for many Americans. Being obese is strongly linked to over 40 medical conditions including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and the development of cancer.

Having just a 10% reduction in body weight has shown positive effects on improving conditions such as high blood pressure, high blood glucose, high cholesterol, and insulin resistance. More importantly, patients who take steps to reduce their body weight often begin to feel better thanks to improved sleep patterns which help to decrease sleep apnea and overall inflammation.

Helping Patients Build Lifelong Healthy Habits

The New Life Now Weight Loss Program at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas was designed to help our patients lead and achieve a healthier lifestyle. The New Life Now Support Team will be with you throughout your entire process. This includes support groups to help you on your journey.

Why Choose a Nationally Accredited Center?

Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas received status as a Comprehensive Accredited Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

Core standards as outlined by MBSAQIP, semiannual reports on quality, and annual compliance reports ensures that weight loss surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. After submitting an application, we underwent an extensive site visit by an experienced bariatric surgeon, who reviewed our center’s structure, process, and clinical outcomes data.

The New Life Now Weight Loss Program at Baptist Hospital, Beaumont is led by a board-certified surgeon in bariatric surgery providing essential support for the specific needs for patients. This sets our center apart from others because having our leadership with additional expertise in bariatrics enhances the structure, process and outcomes of the center.
