Our highly trained, board certified surgeons are experienced to provide you with the best surgical options for your particular case. Here's a sample of our credentials:
Dr. Joseph Buendia, Dr. Stephen Magness and Dr. Elizabeth Hooper have extensive experience performing robotic surgeries for those conditions that are best treated with this less invasive option.
Dr. Elizabeth Hooper is the fellowship trained in bariatric surgery and has a special interest in doing bariatric surgeries.
Our physicians provide surgical procedures and treatments for a variety of conditions, including:
Oncological / Tumor Surgery
Bariatric Surgery (weight loss surgery)
Do you suffer from acid reflux? You may be a candidate for the LINX® Reflux Management System, a less-invasive option for when medication no longer provides adequate control of your symptoms.
Drs. Joseph Buendia and Steven Magness were the first physicians in the state to be trained in this procedure and are offering it to patients in Oklahoma City. Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City was the first hospital to make this option available to Oklahoma.
The LINX® System is a small, flexible band of magnets that keep the stomach valve closed to prevent acid reflux. Swallowing forces the beads to separate and allow food to pass. The magnetic band subsequently closes the valve.
Most patients are eating after surgery and go home the same day.
