Weight Management & Surgery 

The Weight Loss Surgery Program at Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton is recognized as a Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). Bariatric surgeons on the medical staff offer individualized medical weight loss and weight loss surgery options designed to promote long-term weight management to those struggling with morbid obesity.

No quick fixes. No gimmicks. No miracle pills. No fad diets. Our weight loss surgery solutions include: sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass, and duodenal switch procedures.

The goal of surgery for morbid obesity is to help the patient modify his or her behavior so that with a proper diet and exercise, successful and lasting weight loss may be achieved.

At Baylor Carrollton, we offer a variety of education classes and support groups. Click here to view our 2013 schedule.
