Welcome to MIIS Weight Loss Institute, a new medical center of Bay Surgical Specialists with Board-certified surgeons Dr. Huguet, Dr. St. Julien. MIIS Weight Loss Institute, offers a specific focus on patient experience and education through advanced technology. The practice you’ve come to know and trust for over 30 years has undergone a makeover and has a sleek new look!

If you find yourself thinking:

  • I can’t go to the company picnic; they’ll expect me to participate in the softball game.
  • I wish I could sit on the floor and play with the kids without anyone seeing how I get up.
  • I would love to go to the football game, but those seats are so small.
  • I would love to go out more if I weren’t so tired all the time.

We know you have the power to transform your life. It’s a decision only you can make – to empower yourself to live a healthier, happier, and more fulfilled life. Our team at MIIS Weight Loss Institute will be with you every step of the way.

You can experience life-changing weight loss results. You can see dramatic improvements in your overall health within six months. Health improvements include the elimination of medications (hypertension, Type 2 Diabetes, GERD, etc.), improvements in pain and stiffness in your joints, and decreased healthcare costs.  Patients just like you share how they are happy they can do so many things they have never done before – walks in the park, sporting events, travel, marriages, the birth of children, and newfound hobbies.

Your team is here ready to help you on your journey.
