The weight-loss surgery program at Texas Health Dallas has achieved the distinction of being named a member of the MBSAQIP, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the American College of Surgeons, one of the highest distinctions for weight-loss surgery programs in the United States.
To achieve this recognition, the program was put through a comprehensive review of clinical practices, patient outcomes, and facility compliance with MBSAQIP standards. The weight loss surgery program also had to demonstrate that it provides advanced surgical options, as well as long-term follow-up treatment after a patient's surgery.
Gastric Bypass SurgeryDuring this procedure, your surgeon creates a small stomach pouch that restricts the amount of food you can eat. The digestive tract is rerouted, which decreases the amount of nutrients, fat and calories your body absorbs.
Sleeve GastrectomyDuring this procedure, 60-80 percent of the stomach is removed creating a sleeve or tube-like structure. As a result, this restricts the amounts of food you can eat.
Laparoscopic Adjustable BandDuring this procedure, a band is placed around the stomach to slow the passage of food from the upper to lower stomach. This procedure allows for the adjustment of the band to meet your needs.
Revisional ProceduresSurgeons on the medical staff work with patients whose previous weight-loss surgeries did not achieve their desired outcomes, for whatever reason. No matter where your initial procedure was done, a physician on the medical staff of a Texas Health Hospital can discuss your options for a revisional procedure that may meet your needs.
