Bayou Bend Health System is proud to announce the expansion of its services with the opening of a new Bariatric Center in Franklin, Louisiana. The Bayou Bend Bariatric Center will offer a comprehensive range of weight loss solutions, including sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, lap band adjustments, weight loss injections, natural hormone therapy, and thoracic procedures.

The center will be led by Dr. Johnny Perez, a renowned general and bariatric surgeon with over 20 years of experience. Dr. Perez has completed extensive education and training at prestigious institutions such as the University of California Santa Barbara, the University of California School of Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center – UTHealth Houston Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and the University of Texas Houston Medical School. His expertise spans multiple surgical specialties, including bariatrics, laparoscopy, oncology, colorectal surgery, gastroenterology, and endocrinology.

Dr. Perez has achieved several notable milestones in his career, including founding the LapBand program in Thibodaux, LA, and performing the first single-incision laparoscopic gallbladder surgery in the Tri-Parish area. His addition to the Bayou Bend Health System team is expected to be a significant asset to the hospital and the Franklin community.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Perez to our team,” said Stephanie Guidry, CEO of Bayou Bend Health System. “His wealth of knowledge and experience make him an invaluable resource for patients seeking weight loss solutions in Franklin and beyond.”

The Bayou Bend Bariatric Center will be located at 1105 Northwest Boulevard in Franklin, LA, in the former OrthoLA building. Dr. Perez and his staff will begin seeing patients on Monday, July 8, 2024. New patients are welcome, and appointments can be scheduled by calling (337) 471-1215.

The opening of the Bayou Bend Bariatric Center represents a significant expansion of services for Bayou Bend Health System, demonstrating the hospital’s commitment to meeting the evolving healthcare needs of the Franklin community. With Dr. Perez at the helm, the center is poised to become a leading destination for bariatric care in the region.
