A New Lease on LifeTexas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton is a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence®, designated by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
The Bariatric Center of Excellence designation process began with a close collaboration between bariatric surgeons and the hospital, who work through evidence-based protocols for optimal patient outcomes and safety. The compassionate health care providers at Texas Health Denton have made changes to accommodate patients of nontraditional size in waiting and treatment areas, ensuring they do not have to travel for individualized care.
The Bariatric Surgery Program at Texas Health Denton has met or exceeded some of the highest standards in the industry. The comprehensive bariatric services offered give patients the tools they need to resolve comorbidities, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, through dramatic weight loss.
“The Bariatric Surgery Program is committed to quality and providing safe care to our patients and their families,” says Sharon Dingman, R.N., B.S.N., M.S., vice president and chief nursing officer at Texas Health Denton. “For patients who are interested in improving their health through weight loss, we are here to assist in any way possible.”
