Texas Health Denton Bariatrics Center

The weight-loss surgery program at Texas Health Denton 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 as a comprehensive center with adolescent qualifications -- one of the highest distinctions for weight-loss surgery programs in the United States.

To achieve this recognition, the program was put through an exhaustive 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.

Services Offered at Texas Health Denton
Knowing that every case is different, Texas Health Denton offers a variety of procedures to meet your individual needs.
  • Gastric Bypass Surgery
    During 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 Gastrectomy
    During 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 Band
    During 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 Procedures
    Surgeons 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.
  • Duodenal Switch
    The duodenum, or the first portion of the small intestine, is divided just past the outlet of the stomach. A segment of the distal (last portion) small intestine is then brought up and connected to the outlet of the newly created stomach, so that when the patient eats, the food goes through a newly created tubular stomach pouch and empties directly into the last segment of the small intestine.
