Looking for any recommended doctors with a good/long track record performing gastric sleeve/bypasses within a 4 hour driving range of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

As with most people, one of my biggest concerns is not living thru the surgery. I've hung out here and have researched weight loss surgery for over 3 years now and am finally at a place where I feel more than ready for the surgery. I've been doing supervised weight loss with primary (was 390, now down to 340) and I don't want the work I've put into changing my way of eating, what I eat, and the weight loss I've had, not be counted.

I also have knee surgery pending more weight loss and the pain has been getting shockingly worse despite the weight lost. Am at my wit's end in trying to find a surgeon I feel comfortable with. There is a surprisingly VERY VERY few bariatric surgeons in this part of the country whose reviews don't immediately make you rule them out.

My company just added bariatric surgery to our insurance plan last year. I have CIGNA insurance - I hope they aren't awful about it.

Panhandle Weight Loss Center Amarillo, Texas. Excellent reviews and personally zero regrets, everyone there is great.

My surgeon was David Dyslin, in the Alliance area. He was at a general surgery practice in Arlington when I had my surgeries, but has years of bariatric experience. He recently went out on his own to focus on bariatrics. He's in temporary digs right now while his new offices are being built, but you're not ready for the surgery part for a while yet. Even though I had some complications, I have no reservations about Dr. Dyslin. His new number is 817-832-7227.

Also, I have Cigna and had no problems with it. Feel free to PM me if you'd like more info.

This surgeon is phenomenal, and is highly skilled in all bariatric surgeries, including the standard of care Duodenal Switch (2 anastomoses).
