Weight-Loss Surgery at Medical City Las Colinas
The Bariatric & Metabolic Institute at Medical City Las Colinas provides comprehensive pre- and post-operative weight loss care. We believe the key to long-term weight loss success is receiving strong guidance, education and support before, during and after your procedure.
The dedicated, multidisciplinary team of weight loss experts, led by our Board Certified Bariatric Surgeons, is comprised of a patient advocate, registered dietitian and nurse with vast experience and a focus on our patients.
They work collaboratively to create a customized weight loss plan for each patient to provide the maximum probability of achieving long-term weight loss success.
The Bariatric & Metabolic Institute is a Nationally Accredited Weight-Loss Surgery Program
The bariatric surgery program at Medical City Las Colinasis accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), the national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers. The MBSAQIP program is a combined initiative of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).
The program accredits inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery clinics in the United States and Canada that have undergone an independent, voluntary and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards.
Bariatric surgical procedures have been shown to reduce obesity, improve mortality, and decrease the health risks from chronic diseases such as cardiomyopathy and diabetes. For these reasons, the MBSAQIP recognizes facilities, such as Medical City Las Colinas, that implement defined standards of care, document their outcomes and participate in regular reviews to evaluate their bariatric surgical programs.
