Bariatrics

Morbid or severe obesity is a chronic condition that diet and exercise often fail to control. For these patients, particularly those with serious obesity-related health problems, bariatric surgery may be a great option. At BSW Uptown, the Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Program is led by a team of experienced surgeons. The program is supported by an outstanding multidisciplinary group of medical professionals including physician assistants, dietitians, nurse practitioners, and nurses.

The vast number of our weight-loss surgeries are performed using minimally invasive techniques, leading to a reduction in post-operative pain, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, and a faster return to normal activity. 

  • Some of the most common bariatric surgeries performed at Baylor Scott & White Uptown include:

    • Adjustable Gastric Band
    • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
    • Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass

     

    Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Uptown meets all criteria as a MBSAQIP-Accredited Center, according to national quality standards established to deliver safe, high-quality metabolic and bariatric patient care. We are honored to serve our community.
