Weight loss treatment options

Surgical weight loss

Baylor University Medical Center offers the following weight loss surgical procedures:

  • Revisional surgery
  • Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch
  • Gastric sleeve
  • Gastric banding surgery
  • Laparoscopic/robotic gastric bypass

Non-surgical weight loss

Our weight loss surgery program also offers non-surgical, endoscopic approaches to treat weight regain after gastric bypass surgery, which may be caused by an enlarged pouch and/or stretching of the stoma (the opening between the stomach pouch and small intestine). 

Endoscopic procedures are performed through the mouth and are used to tighten an enlarged stomach pouch after gastric bypass.

SHED program at Landry Fitness Center

The Baylor Tom Landry Fitness Center in Dallas offers the SHED program, designed especially for pre-surgical weight loss surgery patients who are beginning their healthy new lifestyle and post-surgical weight loss patients who have been cleared to start exercising. 

Revisional weight loss surgery

Revisional surgery is an option for patients who have already undergone a weight loss procedure and may need another one to repair complications from the first procedure or for patients who have gained weight or not lost sufficient weight.

Most revisional procedures at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas are performed using minimally invasive laparoscopic methods.

You may be a candidate for revisional surgery if:

  • You have not lost enough weight after your first surgery.
  • You regain enough weight that medical problems such as diabetes or gastric reflux have returned.
  • You regain weight to a point where you no longer have lost 50% of your original excess weight.
  • Your BMI is 40 or above.
