If you are 100 pounds overweight — or significantly overweight
with other medical conditions — weight-loss (bariatric) surgery
is available to help improve your health, reduce your risk of
developing associated diseases and enhance your quality of life.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton offers many solutions
to help you lose weight. Surgeons on the medical staff perform
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding
(Lap-Band®) and revision surgery for patients who've had
complications or regained weight from past bariatric surgery.
Presbyterian Denton was recognized as a Bariatric
Surgery Center of Excellence® by the American Society for
Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), one of the
highest distinctions for weight loss programs in the
Bariatric surgery includes patient education that
focuses on healthy eating and good fitness habits and
ongoing visits with your physician.
Information sessions featuring all weight loss options for new
patients are conducted twice a month. For more
