Weight Loss Experts at Medical City Lewisville
The Bariatric & Metabolic Institute at Medical City Lewisville is dedicated to helping patients lead healthier lives. For patients who’ve unsuccessfully tried traditional weight loss options like changing diet and exercise habits and who may have weight-related health problems, surgery might be an option to consider.
Our board certified surgeons have experience beyond bariatrics to include general and trauma surgery, and they work in close collaboration with a dedicated team of multidisciplinary weight loss experts and our patients to determine the best options for the patient. If that option includes a surgical procedure, our bariatric specialists partner with the patient and care team to develop a personalized weight loss plan that provides comprehensive pre- and post-operative care for optimal long-term success.
