Bariatric Center

Begin Your Journey

“Patients who come to our centers seeking help all share a common feeling of hopelessness. The years of failed attempts at weight loss have taken their toll. The seriously obese individual often lives a life of shame and depression only potentiated by society’s views. At Citizens Bariatric Center, we do far more than treat your obesity, we give you hope.”
B. Dean McDaniel, D. O., FASMBS

Citizens Bariatric Center opened in 2000, and since then helped thousands of patients in Victoria, Corpus Christi, and South Texas win their battle against obesity. Citizens Bariatric Center provides a small-town feel, superb patient satisfaction, and the highest standard of care possible. We strive to stay up-to-date with all of the technological advances in the field and as a result offer a full-range of minimally invasive weight-loss surgery options, including the Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy.

Permanent weight loss is accomplished by more than just surgery and Citizens Bariatric Center offers a comprehensive program including nutritional and psychological counseling, support groups, exercise options, a Facebook page and a monthly newsletter.
