Our Lady of Lourdes is the only hospital in Lafayette that offers robotic weight loss surgery, which is less invasive, allows complex procedures with more precision, and reduces overall complications and recovery time.

What our patients are saying

"I consider every moment I have now as a re-do,’ Maria Benoit said. ‘I’ve lost about 155 pounds. I had been thinking about having the surgery but resisting it. I had always been against the surgery for weight loss. I was of the belief that you should be able to do it on your own. Something about that moment at Dollywood just put me over the edge.’

Now, I can chase after my kids, and I’m much more spontaneous…My philosophy is, ‘Don’t waste time."
