San Antonio December 2, 2009 The Bariatric Medical Institute (BMI) of Texas (www.bmioftexas.com) today announced its two founding partners, local bariatric surgeons Terive Duperier and Michael Seger, were once again named "Top Doctors" in Scene in S.A. magazine's fifth annual survey of San Antonio's top doctors.

Scene in S.A. magazine staff sent surveys to 4,000 physicians in San Antonio, asking them to recommend to whom they would refer their family members. The magazine received nearly 1,000 physician nominations in more than 80 specialties. From the responses received, the magazine developed the list of "San Antonio's Top Doctors" which appeared in its November 2009 issue.

"There are many fine physicians in San Antonio and we are honored to have been selected by our referring physicians and colleagues as among the city's best," said Dr. Mickey Seger. "We feel fortunate to live in San Antonio and have the opportunity to assist our patients in leading healthier lives by freeing them from obesity and its many co-morbidities."

BMI of Texas assists patients throughout their entire weight loss journey. After attending a free, educational seminar and learning about the various types of weight loss surgery procedures, patients are assigned a patient advocate to help coordinate the often-confusing paperwork and insurance stipulations necessary for surgical intervention. Post-operatively, the doctors continue to follow their patients to ensure long-term weight loss success.

Located in San Antonio's Medical Center area, BMI of Texas helps patients achieve their weight loss goals through various surgical procedures including gastric bypass, adjustable gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy. Additionally, the surgeons perform a full spectrum of advanced laparoscopic procedures, including laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (anti-reflux surgery), laparoscopic colon surgery, laparoscopic pancreatic surgery, and laparoscopic hernia surgeries.
