Patients from across the country travel to our FreshStart Program at Previty Clinics located in Southeast Texas and in Houston, Texas. When it comes to bariatric surgery, experience in training and a comprehensive program make the difference in your weight loss success.
Complications to the intragastric balloons are rare, however you will have peace of mind with 24/7 access to our surgeons directly. If a complication arises and you live outside our service area, our on-call surgeon is available to address any problems with your local physician or emergency room staff.
After care and maintenance of your intragastric balloons are coordinated on a regular basis and can be successfully accomplished through our electronic patient portal, including your nutrition visits using Skype technology. We track your progress in real time using your complementary scale and activity tracker that you will receive when starting the program. We provide you with dietary and exercise tools that can easily be utilized in the privacy of your own home with real time feedback through the patient portal. We are on-call for you 24/7 through our patient portal; one-on-one visits with your surgeon and our team are scheduled on a monthly basis and can be accomplished using Skype if you live far from us.
