About Our Practice

In San Angelo Area – Bariatric Surgery and More

At Minimally Invasive Bariatrics, our patients come first. From the custom furniture and soothing atmosphere in our office to the extensive educational and support programs we have established, everything is designed to make the patient’s experience as positive and successful as possible.Dr. Glenn Ihde and the staff at our San Angelo practice provide bariatric surgery patients with options and programs.

Minimally Invasive, Maximum Benefit


At Minimally Invasive Bariatrics, we focus on providing our patients with the best medical and surgical care that we can offer. That is why we perform laparoscopic, endoscopic, andincisionless procedures. By utilizing technology that allows us to perform surgical procedures without creating large abdominal incisions, we improve the surgical and recovery experience for our patients. Fewer, smaller, or nonexistent incisions require shorter recovery periods, leave minimal or no scarring, and put the patient at less risk of infection and other post-operative complications.

Truly Comprehensive Care

medical-symbol1At our practice serving San Angelo, bariatric surgery is not just about the procedure. It is a long process, consisting of many stages, which we are committed to helping the patient through from beginning to end. It begins with our in-depth educational program and continues long after recovery with our Post-bariatric counseling and support.

Also, Dr. Ihde works hard to ensure that he is able to offer all types of bariatric surgery, not just one or two techniques. By keeping up with the latest developments in the field and learning new procedures as they become available, Dr. Ihde is able to provide a wide range of options for his patients.

Finally, we want to emphasize that bariatric surgery is not the only kind of surgery that is performed at our practice. Dr. Ihde uses minimally invasive techniques to perform surgery on the gallbladder, spleen, and colon, as well as operations for correcting hernias and reflux problems.

Focused on Education

medical-educationDr. Ihde believes that the success of any bariatric surgery procedure depends on the quality of the education that the patient receives about how the surgery works and what is required to achieve his or her goals. At Minimally Invasive Bariatrics, we have an educational program in place to teach potential patients about all the aspects of their procedures, as well as all of the surgical options available to them. We encourage patients to ask questions so that, by the time they go into surgery, they fully understand the process and what to expect.


At Minimally Invasive Bariatrics, we focus on thoroughly educating our patients, offering a wide range of surgical options, and providing comprehensive follow-up care. We believe that these are the factors that can make the difference between a successful procedure and one that does not produce the desired result
