Representing the best in their fields, UT bariatric surgeons bring special expertise to their patients to treat obesity by modification of the gastrointestinal tract to reduce nutrient intake and/or absorption. For individuals who have been unable to achieve significant weight loss through diet modifications and exercise programs alone, bariatric surgery may help to attain a more healthy body weight. Our surgeons are respected pioneers in minimally-invasive procedures. UT bariatric surgeons provide a comprehensive bariatric surgery program and perform more than 700 laparoscopic bariatric procedures each year.
