About BMI Surgery
Jay C. Long, M.D., FACS received his medical degree from University of Alabama School of Medicine followed by a residency in general surgery at Baptist Medical Centers in Birmingham, Alabama. After that time, he completed a fellowship in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery at The Methodist Hospital, Houston. He is Board Certified in General Surgery.
Dr. Long provides a one-on-one consultation with all patients to begin their weight loss journey. This helps each individual decide which weight reduction option is best. A multidisciplinary team also provides further advice and reinforcement before and after surgery through monthly support meetings, a nutrition/prep class, and customized high protein diets. Together, these diverse elements ensure adherence to one’s weight loss goals for an improved, healthier life that’s more emotionally fulfilling.
Why Select Our Practice
Unlike many weight loss surgery practices, the physician at Birmingham Minimally Invasive Surgery has specialized training in bariatric surgery. Our surgeon completed a fellowship in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, where he focused on taking care of patients that are morbidly obese. At BMI Surgery, taking care of morbidly obese patients is what we do best, and we have developed significant experience and skill in successfully achieving permanent weight loss for our patients. Our facilities are purpose-built for procedures like gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, LAP-BAND, and Orbera®, and we specialize in making weight loss surgery as painless as possible.
