Dr. Craig Chang is a general surgeon who has completed specialty training in laparoscopic surgery and weight loss surgery. Our team welcomes you for a consultation at either of our office locations, in Victoria and Corpus Christi, Texas.
Weight Loss Procedures
Bariatric surgery is a proven long term treatment for those struggling with excess weight. The vast majority of weight loss procedures performed by Dr. Chang are done laparoscopically, meaning with special instruments and small incisions as opposed to one large incision. Deciding which procedure is the best option for you is very personal. Dr. Chang and our care team will discuss your options in detail with you during a consultation and the risks and benefits of each to help you make the best choice for your unique medical needs and goals.
As a compliment to our bariatric surgical services, we also offer a non-surgical medical weight loss program.
General Surgery Procedures
Except in special circumstances, most abdominal surgery is done laparoscopically with small incisions. Dr. Chang has extensive experience
- Cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder)
- Surgery on the intestinal tract (colon surgery, appendectomy, heartburn surgery)
- Hernia surgery
- Breast surgery
- Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) for GERD, or acid reflux
Not everyone who comes to our office will need an operation. Some patients may simply need an evaluation. We are happy to provide this service and help you to better understand your condition and your treatment options. We invite you to contact us to schedule an consultation.
