View Our Virtual Tour
Welcome to our program. Live Healthy MD offers a unique set of weight loss, lifestyle, and preventative medicine services for Augusta and the CSRA. We are specialists in the areas of surgical weight loss (bariatric surgery) and medical weight loss (medical bariatrics). Lifestyle medicine includes the application of medication, diet, and exercise for the treatment and prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and elevated cholesterol. Additionally, we have specialized training in the treatment of nicotine addiction.
The Surgical Weight Loss program is the area’s Center of Excellence for bariatric surgery and is operated by Dr. Michael Blaney and Dr. Francisco Jacome. We perform all types of laparoscopic weight loss surgery: gastric bypass, gastric band (lap band), vertical sleeve gastrectomy, bilio-pancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, greater curve plication, and revisions. Unlike other programs, Live Healthy MD surgeons have made surgical weight loss the primary focus of their practice.
