Brian Mirza, MD, FACS, is a board-certified general surgeon with advanced fellowship training in laparoscopic weight loss surgery from the renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation. He has been in practice for more than 15 years, during which time he has successfully performed thousands of laparoscopic and bariatric surgery procedures with outstanding outcomes. His goal is to provide each patient with compassionate, state-of-the-art care.
Dr. Mirza offers the following bariatric weight loss surgery procedures in Houston, Dallas and the surrounding area: adjustable gastric banding with Lap Band or Realize Band, laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve surgery). With formal fellowship training in minimally invasive weight loss surgery, Dr. Mirza is able to perform all of these procedures using the laparoscopic approach. Laparoscopic weight loss surgery requires smaller incisions when compared to conventional open surgery. For patients who have not been successful at losing enough weight after prior weight loss surgery, or who wish to lose more, Dr. Mirza offers revisional bariatric surgery, a highly effective procedure that is more suitable for these patients and better fits their lifestyle.

"After dealing with progressive health issues I knew it was time for me to begin my journey for weight loss surgery. I attended 10 seminars in the Houston area, and then I met Dr. Mirza and knew I could stop looking. I had trust and confidence in his knowledge and expertise, and was comfortable with his overall personality. In addition, the quality of the program and the thoroughness prior to surgery ensuring my safety was of huge importance. The staff was helpful in scheduling all of my appointments and showed compassionate one-on-one care. Since the surgery, I feel like I have a new life! I have been able to buy new clothes, have the ability to get around with ease and live an active lifestyle. It took 10 tries to find the right doctor, and when I did... it was Dr. Mirza!" —Ronnie
"Where do I begin? This weight loss has not only changed my life it has changed the lives of my husband and my children. I no longer take a million years trying to find something to wear, or have a bad attitude all the time. I'm not always crying because I can't find a pair of pants that fit me right. I used to have to go to a million stores dragging my poor husband along until I found a pair of pants that slightly fit. This surgery has changed the way I look at myself, I finally see the real me. I'm living my life like a young woman should. I feel like I've missed out on so much. I use to hide myself behind my weight. I feel like I have come out into to the light, the light of my new life. I can't even begin to explain the gratitude I feel toward all of you in that office; everybody played a part in this and thanks to all of you, I feel like I can finally start living a new life as a new me." —Amanda

"I chose weight loss surgery because I was out of options. I had tried dieting and exercise, but the weight would come off, then it would come back and I would gain even more. So I turned to my co-worker who had already undergone the research to select a great doctor and had already had the surgery with Dr. Mirza. He highly recommended Dr. Mirza, and at my appointment I was convinced this was the right choice for me as well. The staff was very informative and nice, and remains so to this day. The weight loss from the surgery has got me moving! I just ran my first 13.1 mile half marathon, and plan on entering a full one in the near future. If I am not running every couple of days I find myself missing it! Now at the end of the day, I can enjoy a full night's sleep, and no longer have to be concerned with taking blood pressure pills or have the threat of diabetes hanging over my head. I am so happy with the results, and truly believe when you "Lose Weight" you can "Enjoy Life!" The surgery Dr. Mirza performed and the staff's support has helped me change my life. I have recommended him to several friends and relatives so they can get moving, too!" —Mary
