  • About Me

    Dr. Samuel Bledsoe is the Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Hospital (CSFCH) in Alexandria, LA.  He has been performing bariatric surgery in Central Louisiana since 2009.  He is a partner at Mid-Louisiana Surgical Specialists, the Section Chief of Surgery at CSFCH, a member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.  

    Dr. Bledsoe has dedicated his professional life to helping those who struggle with obesity, and he has provided safe and successful bariatric surgery to hundreds of bariatric patients.  His reputation is such that people have traveled from foreign countries, the Carribean, and nearly every state in the Southeast and Midwest for him to intervene on their behalf.  He and his team of specially trained nurses, exercise physiologists, and dieticians guide patients through every step of the process in order to ensure that their procedure is as safe and effective as possible.

    Dr. Bledsoe offers a wide array of weight loss procedures including the sleeve gastrectomy, the gastric bypass, and the adjustable gastric band.  While he believes that a successful procedure is often the first step, proper diet and exercise is critical to long-term success.  Because of this, he is the co-founder of a vitamin supplier that caters to the micro-nutritional needs of bariatric patients and a gym whose goal is to provide dietary education, exercise training, and psychological support for their clients.

    If you would like Dr. Bledsoe to assist you with your weight loss or health related goals, please contact Mid-Louisiana Surgical Specialists today in order to schedule a consultation.
