Established in 2012, The Better Weigh Center is Corpus Christi’s only comprehensive weight loss center, offering both medical and surgical weight loss plans to help patients who struggle with their weight.
Their state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary approach to weight loss allows patients to achieve long-lasting results by addressing all the known causes of obesity and helping patients develop healthier sustainable habits.
The practice is led by Dr. Lloyd Stegemann, Corpus Christi’s most experienced bariatric surgeon, and Dr. Jegan Gopal, the only fellowship-trained bariatric surgeon in the city. “We offer all bariatric surgery options because there isn’t one procedure that is right for everyone,” said Dr. Gopal.
All surgeries are done right here in Corpus Christi. The Better Weigh Center also has programs for individuals that want to lose weight but aren’t interested in surgery. “We’re really excited about what we can offer Coastal Bend residents to help them gain control of their weight and get back to a healthier life,” said Andrea Hartquist, NP who helps lead the medical weight loss program.
New for 2023, the Better Weigh Center will open Better Way Wellness in February, which will offer hormone replacement, peptide therapy and infusion therapies. “This is going to be a great addition to the weight management services we currently offer because hormones and weight go hand-in-hand,” stated Dr. Stegemann.
