Ready to make a life change? We can help.
Obesity, the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, is a growing national epidemic affecting more than 100 million Americans. If untreated, obesity increases the risk of acquiring a number of chronic illnesses or comorbidities, including diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and stroke.
Bariatric surgery, performed by Dr. David Dyslin, Dr. Clayton Frenzel and Dr. Augustus Lyons, physicians on the medical staff at Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital, offers those who are concerned about the long-term health effects of their obesity with options, including gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding and gastric sleeve.
Only your physician can determine if you are a candidate for one of these procedures, and for those who qualify, the hospital offers the support of our nutritional services providing nutritional analysis and counseling, a licensed health care provider facilitating monthly support group meetings and professional nursing staff educated in bariatric patient care.
Bariatric surgery is an important example of how we continuously focus on improving the health of the people in our community.
