Weight Loss Surgery 

Weight Loss Procedures for Results that Last

The Weight Loss Surgery Program at Baylor Dallas has been designated a Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

Weight loss surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Dallas have performed more than 8,000 weight loss procedures since the program began in 2001. A majority of the procedures we perform are done through minimally invasive laparoscopy, often on an outpatient basis. Most patients go home within 24 hours, which reduces time off from work, lessens the risk of infection and promotes a speedy recovery.

At the Baylor Weight Loss Surgery Center of Dallas, surgery is just one tool for weight loss, not a quick fix. Your weight loss surgery team will review and discuss your personal health history and possibility of related risks and complications.

A personalized plan of care developed by our multidisciplinary team is designed meet your weight loss and long-term maintenance needs, by offering a variety of support resources. The Weight Loss Surgery Program at Baylor Dallas aims to be the last weight loss program you will ever need.
