Welcome to South Texas Surgeons, P.A. Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery
South Texas Surgeons was founded in 2003 by Drs. Wright and Cárcamo, two board-certified San Antonio general surgeons who specialize in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery. We offer surgical treatment for diseases of the stomach, colon, gallbladder, spleen, skin and abdominal wall (hernia). Open and robotically-assisted surgical techniques are offered as well.
Drs. Cárcamo and Wright are two of the nation’s premier Lap-Band surgeons, having safely performed over 6500 weight loss procedures. Their great results and low complication rates are among the finest reported. Lap-Band, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, vBloc Procedure, Gastric Balloon, and revisional procedures are performed. In addition to surgery, we provide complete long-term nutritional and psychological support for weight loss surgery patients. We are also among the first surgeons in the U.S. to offer the vBbloc neurostimulator and the Orbera gastric balloon, a non-surgical option for weight loss.
Free seminars are held twice weekly in our office to discuss the differences between the gastric band, gastric bypass, and gastric sleeve procedures. The surgeons are available to answer questions and help you decide which procedure is best for you. We accept all major insurance plans, and are able to obtain insurance authorization for most of our patients. We also strive to have the most affordable cash pricing available for patients without insurance coverage, and offer financing if needed.
