Meet the Practice
We’re improving health for the long-term
With over 20 years of experience, Drs. Pilcher, Reiss, and Sabowitz have built the strongest reputation in San Antonio for helping patients conquer their weight problems and regain control of their lives. Whether you’re interested in a surgical or non-surgical solution, our programs offer a higher standard for skilled medical care and compassionate patient attention.
Experienced Bariatric Surgery
When it comes to bariatric surgery, we are experienced and proficient in a variety of surgical procedures to meet individual patient needs, including Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Banding, and revision surgery. With over 6,000 bariatric procedures, we have a very low rate of surgical complications and an excellent rate of lifelong weight control. We attribute our outstanding success rates not only to the skill of Dr. Pilcher and Dr. Reiss, but also to our team-based approach that offers each patient the compassionate care and life-long guidance needed to meet and maintain goals.
Customized Medical Weight Loss
Since 2009, we have been proud to have Dr. Brian Sabowitz, a respected bariatric specialist, as part of our team. Under his supervision, our medical weight loss programs fill a need for our patients who want to lose 10-70+ pounds without surgery. It also provide additional after-care options for our surgical patients. The programs and tools are tailored to fit each patient’s specific needs for losing weight and keeping it off for the long-term.
Leaders in our Field
Our doctors not only help patients—they also use their knowledge and skills to serve as teaching faculty members, helping to train other doctors in the art and science of bariatric surgery and bariatric medicine. Our physicians also frequently participate in clinical trials and research studies, giving our patients access to leading technology and devices that are constantly improving bariatric medicine.
We’re beside our patients every step of the way. For example, every patient works with a patient advocate, someone familiar with the patient's history who is available as a point of contact now and for years to come. Our team is well-rounded, including not only doctors and nurses but also counselors, personal trainers and a full-time dietitian who coaches and assists you to take control of your eating strategies. Many patients find their greatest strength through our ever-growing peer group programs, which provide social and psychological support where and when you need it most.
Recognized for Our Work
As a result of our focus and excellent patient outcomes, New Dimensions has been designated as a Center of Excellence in bariatric surgery. This designation is awarded by an independent external review agency called the Surgical Review Corporation and it is granted only after extensive review confirms that a program has all the pieces in place to achieve outstanding outcomes in terms of safety and effectiveness.
