At Coastal Carolina Bariatric Center, we are dedicated to helping people who are obese achieve dramatic, long-term changes through batiatric surgery.

Neil McDevitt, MD, leads our team of compassionate, patient-centered professionals. We feel called to this work because obesity is a health liability that fosters many problems, including diabetes, stroke, liver disease, and cancer. With surgery and support, patients can bolster their health while also enjoying many other benefits in regards to appearance, as well as what they can do and accomplish.

If you have struggled with other weight-loss methods, surgery can be life changing. Yet, this is not a simple decision or a simple path. That's why we ask prospective patients attend a complimentary information session followed by a comprehensive education program with a dietician, exercise physiologist, and an independent psychologist or psychiatrist. During this period, we will explore which weight-loss surgery will work best for you.

We offer several safe and highly effective weight loss surgery options including, minimally invasive, Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, LAP-BAND surgery and Vertical Sleeve gastrectomy. Complete success requires a commitment to change in any case, and we will be here for you throughout your journey, boosting you up and holding you accountable. In addition to monthly support groups, our practice hosts clothing exchanges and promotes communication through our members-only Facebook page. Our patients, along with our staff, participate in 5Ks as "Team McDevitt," and a kayak trip that was planned to celebrate one patient's weight loss.

We made Summerville Medical Center our home because of its close-knit feel. Our office set up encourages visitors to get to know one another, with comfortable couches, bulletin boards, and photos highlighting patients' accomplishments.

We never want you to feel alone, and you will find that reflected in this site, which is filled with resources. Please explore it and contact us at (843)875-8994 to learn more or sign up for an information seminar. We welcome patients throughout the Lowcountry, including Charleston, Hilton Head, Beaufort, Bluffton, Savannah, Columbia, the Midlands and more. Likewise, Dr. McDevitt often is available to speak to community groups about weight loss and bariatric surgery.

Wishing you health and happiness,

Dr. Neil McDevitt and Staff
