What Sets Barix Apart
The Barix Team Approach to Bariatric Care.
Unlike other hospitals, that began offering bariatric surgery as one of their surgical service lines just because a staff general surgeon decided to begin performing bariatric surgery, Barix Clinics spent years developing its comprehensive care program and selecting and training the entire team of people needed to provide the best bariatric care possible. The bariatric surgeons at Barix Clinics are specialists who are dedicated to bariatric surgery. The Barix Quality Program is based upon having internal medicine physicians who complete required testing on every bariatric patient prior to surgery, to assure that every patient meets Barix’s stringent medical clearance requirements. These internists have developed special diagnostic and post-surgical assessment skills, which serve as a major benefit in the post-operative care of bariatric patients. In addition to developing a unique training program, Barix focused on all the other physicians, nurses, technicians, nutritionists and staff required to deliver a level of service to the bariatric patient that no other healthcare organization had ever come close to providing. This team approach recognized that every member of the team must have not only superior clinical skills but also must be committed to superior outcomes and service excellence.
A Life-changing Program. A Lifetime of Support.
Barix Clinics are fully accredited hospitals with the experience and capability for performing complex major surgery.
Barix offers the latest innovations in minimally invasive laparoscopic Roux en-y gastric bypass, lap band and, laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgeries.
Twenty years’ experience: one of the reasons bariatric surgery became well-known over the past few years is that Barix has a track record of success with more than 37,000 patients. No other program has helped as many people as Barix Clinics--not even close. The expert surgeons at Barix Clinics perform more surgeries in one month than most general hospital programs will perform in a whole year.
We specialize in bariatric surgery and do not offer it as an addition to the list of general surgeries offered. Barix Clinics focuses on minimally invasive laparoscopic Roux en-y gastric bypass, lap band, and laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgeries. Many hospitals average fewer bariatric surgeries in a year that we do in a month. Expertise and best outcomes are due to the years and large numbers of cases we have performed. The more you do, the better you become.
Barix Cares as if You were Family.
At Barix Clinics every patient is cared for as if they were a member of the family. Unfortunately, in most hospitals, especially the larger medical centers, patients are treated as if they were just numbers, in a very impersonal, clinically detached manner. Barix Clinics was founded upon the belief that every patient should be treated as more than a VIP, as if they were a part of the family. In fact, over the last 20 years, patients have attended annual patient reunions so they could share with Barix staff their success in losing weight and starting a new life. Many Barix staff members are former bariatric patients and they understand your concerns prior to surgery, and also the changes that occur after surgery.
"The Barix clinic was great! They helped me overcome and face my fears with the surgery. The nurses where excellent and encouraging with kind words. My life has changed for the better. I can run, walk fast, my joints don’t hurt every time I climb the stairs and my energy is higher. My family really sees a difference in my new attitude and they always compliment how much weight I have lost every time they see me."--Yoanila B
