Here at the UT Health Tyler Bariatric Center, we offer specialized services such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and revision operations. Our experience in bariatric care has allowed us to successfully perform over 6,000 procedures since 2001, while offering comprehensive care in pre-op and post-op programs.
There are two main reasons why we consider weight loss surgery (WLS). The first is that other methods for controlling weight have not been effective, and the second is that obesity has serious consequences for health. In general, the more severe the obesity, the more severe the consequences. Obesity has been shown to correlate with a shorter life-span.
