Ready to meet any patient’s need, 24/7/365.

Dr. Acheson defines his near-altruistic ideology as the desire to accomplish the best care for his patients. His desire is to see his patients achieve the most optimal health and function, allowing them to move forward with their lives in peak fashion. That means providing the least invasive surgery with the fastest recovery, all while assisting with comprehensive pre and post-surgical care.

It’s no wonder then, that with skill, compassion, and earned reputation, Dr. Acheson, along with his peers at Capital Surgeons Group, serve as pioneers and leaders within robotic surgery on a nationwide scale. But–that never stops Dr. Acheson from caring for each and every patient based on their individual and specific needs.

Dr. Acheson has experience in a broad range of state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries, specializing in advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery, bariatric surgery including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, Lap-Band® maintenance/removal, revision surgery, and duodenal switch category procedures, as well as GERD treatment/acid reflux surgery and robotic hernia surgery.

A Texan by birth, Dr. Acheson loves the lifestyle afforded by living in the Austin area. He is a former collegiate quarterback and continues to be an avid sports enthusiast. In addition to basketball and football, he enjoys participating in outdoor sporting activities such as running, hiking, and camping with his family.

“Southwest Bariatric Surgeons has impacted more lives with bariatric surgery than all other bariatric providers in the Austin area combined. It’s amazing to be a part of that.”
