Important Announcement

Baton Rouge Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Andrew “Drew” Hargroder, hopes that his patients, prospective patients and the community in general saw the recent news coverage of his use of the new and innovative SPIDER procedure to achieve safe and effective weight loss through surgery. Dr. Hargroder is excited to offer this new procedure and invites you to call his office for more information.

Unfortunately, shortly following this news coverage, the local media also reported that Baton Rouge Physician, Dr. James Hargroder, was arrested by East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s detectives and charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile and computer-aided solicitation of a minor. While Dr. Andrew “Drew” Hargroder has no information or opinion concerning the merits of those charges or allegations, he wishes to inform his patients and the community in general that he is not the same Dr. Hargroder that was arrested and charged with those crimes. Dr. Andrew “Drew” Hargroder is not related to nor is he affiliated in any way with the Dr. James Hargroder who was recently arrested.

Dr. Andrew “Drew” Hargroder hopes that this clarifies any misunderstandings or concerns of his patients and the public. Dr. Andrew “Drew” Hargroder will continue to offer his patients excellent medical care and surgical weight loss solutions and invites you to call his office so that you can learn more information about the life changing experience he can offer.
