Our Philosophy

Congratulations! You have taken the first steps to controlling your weight problems.

At Weight Loss Surgical Centers of Louisiana, we understand morbid obesity is a terrible disease. You are NOT taking “the easy way out,” nor should you be ashamed of researching your options for weight control.

Telling someone with morbid obesity their only option is to “stop eating so much” or “push away from the table” is the same as telling someone who loves to play tennis and injures their shoulder to simply “never play tennis again.” It is perfectly reasonable for that person to have their shoulder surgically repaired, so they can once again enjoy life’s pleasures. So, why would anyone not find it acceptable for an individual to have a surgical weight loss procedure so that person can once again go to the movies, fly in an airplane, or play in the yard with their children?

Morbid obesity is not a choice, it is a serious condition that benefits from treatment. Our staff is committed to helping people overcome morbid obesity, and it is our pleasure to provide you with this information.

“Dr. Bellanger was completely professional and seemed compassionate to my situation. He has always been pleasant to deal with. He completed my surgery with no complications. Dr. Bellanger and his staff are always friendly and very supportive. They answered all my questions and gave me plenty of information on top of what I asked.
