Dr. Patel also offers single-incision laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve surgery). This procedure involves an incision in the belly button and a mini-incision near the bottom of the breast bone.  Dr. Patel and his team offer reconstructive and revision surgery as well.

Part of what makes Texas Bariatric Specialists an excellent weight loss surgery option is the comprehensive selection of resources to support patients along their weight loss journey; these include nutritional and psychological counseling as well as peer support groups, an on-site nutritional resources store and pre- and post-surgical classes.

Words cannot describe how truly indebted I am to Dr. Patel and his staff.” — Harold
