WeightWise is committed to long-term patient health and advocates for each person to thrive in life. Our patient testimonials speak for themselves and our experienced team of medical professionals is simply unmatched. Dr. Toby Broussard and Dr. Greg Walton bring years of hands-on expertise in the bariatric surgery field to each operation.
Because of their devotion to patient comfort and success, they are both partial owners in Summit Medical Center as well. This allows them greater oversight ability, both at the office level and hospital level, giving them better opportunities to serve patients in all phases of surgical care.
The WeightWise Value Proposition
What sets WeightWise apart from so many other programs is our holistic approach to weight loss. For us, surgery is just one part of the equation that helps our clients lose the necessary weight to live a healthy life.
We don’t offer “one-size-fits-all” solutions or hyper-aggressive marketing that overpromises and under-delivers. The “WeightWise Preoperative Process” has been honed over the last 15 years and concentrates on pre-op, surgery, and post-op procedures.
Initial consultations focus on risk assessment, risk mitigation, education, and practice on post-operation skills. These are required to meet three goals: A safe operation, massive weight loss post-surgery, and long-term weight loss maintenance, vigor, and health.
For many of our clients, the surgery is the easiest part of a gastric sleeve/bypass or duodenal switch! But we feel this is the best way to lose unwanted pounds and keep them off. If during that initial consultation we feel a potential client isn’t able to adhere to the process, we offer non-surgical ways of losing weight.
These reasons could be physical, emotional, or they just have other goals or seek other values. In those cases, we wish them the best of luck. We believe our procedures are so successful because of this process and working with patients that want to lose weight the right way.
WeightWise and Summit Medical Center provide both surgical and non-surgical options for patients, including fitness and nutrition services easily accessible in the same building. Our metabolic program is a non-surgical option that helps patients struggling with their weight to visit with a nurse practitioner, draw lab work as necessary, undergo metabolic testing, and consult with a dietitian.
Our dietitians will work to create an eating plan that works specifically with the patient’s dietary needs. Then after a second visit, the patient begins working with an exercise physiologist. This program helps patients to get on the path toward successful weight loss and gives them tangible goals that can help transform their lifestyle and health.
Transforming Lives at the Summit Medical Center
WeightWise Bariatric Program and Summit Medical Center’s central goal is to provide top-quality bariatric surgical care in a state-of-the-art specialty hospital. We are dedicated to maintaining a close relationship with this hospital because we share the exact same objectives: to provide excellent weight loss surgery outcomes for each patient we have the privilege of working with. This close partnership has allowed our complication rates to stay well below the national average and has secured our positive reputation for outstanding bariatric surgical care.
Why Summit Medical Center?
Summit Medical Center provides each patient with private rooms with a fold-out couch for one family member. Many of our patients comment that the hospital feels more like a comfortable hotel, rather than a hospital. The medical center provides attentive, personalized care in an appropriately sized and intimate setting, which allows our patients to relax and recover like they would at home.
The surrounding area around the WeightWise facility at 1800 S. Renaissance Blvd. in Edmond, is well-appointed and conveniently located to major thoroughfares and freeways, so traveling to and from the office is accessible and time-effective.
A Complete Bariatric Surgery Center
The surgical program at WeightWise is a multidisciplinary approach as well. Each person in the surgical program will work closely with our surgeons, nurse practitioners, dietitians, exercise physiologists, and patient advocates both before surgery and in the years following surgery. We have complimentary support groups as well which are run by our psychologist, Dr. Keller.
Each facet of the program is designed for your long-term success. By offering every step of the weight-loss journey, from the first phone call to months of post-op support, we provide all of the guidance you’ll need. Why travel all over town to see a surgeon, then a dietitian, and then an exercise physiologist in three different places?
Together, WeightWise and Summit Medical Center strive to offer safe and successful operations and hospital stays for each patient. Ready to get your journey to weight loss started?
