Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery Center

Services

Our surgeons are skilled in the latest bariatric surgery techniques, including laparoscopic procedures. These minimally invasive procedures involve the use of several small punctures or incisions, versus traditional surgery that is performed through large incision lines that open the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery offers patients improved outcomes that may include less postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer infections.

We offer the following surgical options:

  • Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
  • Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAP-BAND)
  • Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

The Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery Center is part of the Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine, renowned for state-of-the-art surgical techniques performed by highly trained, specialized surgeons. Baylor College of Medicine offers the bariatric program in partnership with CHI St. Luke’s Health.
