​​​Bariatric surgery is an option for those individuals suffering from obesity and involves a variety of different methods. Baylor Scott & White​ Medical & Surgical Clinic - Irving is happy to offer its patient bariatric surgery services, including gastric bypass and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. Our clinic in Irving understands that bariatric surgery is a serious decision for a patient, and our experienced team will help patients make the best decision possible.

The choice to undergo bariatric surgery is a personal one, and our doctors do their best to help patients understand the decision. Deciding on bariatric surgery requires a patient to consider a variety of factors, including dietary choices, lifestyle, and more. With plenty of bad information about bariatric surgery, it is important for patients to meet with our doctors and discuss the realities of bariatric surgery, the results you can expect, and how bariatric surgery will change your health.  Our team of doctors strive to provide the proper information so that patients can make the decision to improve their lives.

On top of performing the bariatric surgery, our doctors also seek to offer comprehensive health and individualized care. Since no patients have the exact same history, we evaluate every patient as an individual to provide the best care possible. To accomplish this, our doctors offer comprehensive weight loss plans to help patients achieve their goals and enjoy better health.

As patients decide on bariatric surgery, our doctors will be with them every step of the way to help them make the right decision and answer any questions a patient might have. Our goal is to create long lasting relationships with patients to help them feel comfortable through the whole process.

Whether contemplating gastric bypass or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, we hope that you contact our doctors for a consultation. Our doctors will be happy to talk to you and help you make the important decision surrounding bariatric surgery.
