    Physician Bio

    Well recognized as one of the nation’s leaders in LAP-BAND® surgery,
    Dr. Wright has been in practice in San Antonio since 2001. He graduated
    with high honors from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston,
    and completed his surgical training at the University of Texas Southwestern
    Medical School. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery,
    a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a member of the following
    groups: American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, Society
    of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons, Texas Medical Association,
    and Bexar County Medical Society.

    He founded South Texas Surgeons, PA with Dr. Gerardo Cárcamo in
    2003, which is San Antonio’s oldest weight loss surgery practice.
    Having performed more than 7,000 successful weight loss operations, the
    practice has been used as a model for training other LAP-BAND® surgeons
    not only in techniques of surgery, but also in postoperative and nutritional care.

    Dr. Wright completed additional training through Ohio State and Duke Universities,
    and offers the gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and revisional surgery.
    He performed the first vBloc and intragastric balloon procedures in San
    Antonio with Dr. Cárcamo. He provides aftercare for patients who
    had bariatric procedures performed at other facilities, including all
    True Results patients.

    A consultant for Apollo Endosurgery, Inc., Dr. Wright provides valuable
    insight on current surgical technique and new product development for
    weight loss surgery. He has also been a member of the Allergan faculty,
    involved in training new bariatric surgeons. He sees patients at the Nix
    Medical Center, where he was the Chief of Surgery and Anesthesiology from
    2006 - 2016, and is currently president-elect of the medical staff. His
    patients describe him as a highly skilled surgeon who pays great attention
    to detail and has a warm, sensitive bedside manner.
