We are pleased to announce a new collaborative effort with Baylor Scott & White Health, one of the top healthcare systems in the country. As we transition some internal processes and technology, communication, reminders or billing may come directly from Baylor. Please be patient with us during this transition as we work through a new scheduling/patient platform and strive to provide superior patient support. 
We are committed to the highest medical standards and will continue to operate at other top tier facilities throughout DFW to ensure patient choice to offer the best solution to each individual, both from an insurance/cost and safety perspective. As always, we put our patients’ well-being first.
Sincerely, Dr. Nick Nicholson and the team at the Nicholson Clinic

We are fully open for in-person consults and ready to take care of you!

In-person office visits are important! For new consults it’s imperative to meet the surgeon and feel comfortable with the doctor who will be taking care of you. It’s also important to have an in-person medical evaluation, take any necessary tests while here, and get accurate height and weight measurements which are required for insurance approval. Please note, we are following recommended CDC healthcare guidelines and currently requiring masks for patient office visits. Learn more about our COVID Protocol.

The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery - One of the Pre-Eminent Weight Loss Surgery Centers in the Country

Welcome to the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery - led by Dr. Nick Nicholson, one of the most experienced minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeons in the country. He instructs surgeons around the world on bariatric procedures on behalf of Johnson & Johnson and W.L. Gore & Associates. Dr. Nick, along with a full staff of surgeons, nurses and other experienced clinicians, have helped over 25,000 patients reverse obesity by offering affordable weight loss surgery options, including Sleeve Gastrectomy, Duodenal SwitchGastric Bypass, LAP-BAND and Revisions.

Weight loss surgery is a monumental decision that patients often arrive at after many years of suffering with obesity. The physical and emotional ramifications of the weight itself, as well as the many conditions that often ride the coattails of obesity, can dramatically cut lives short. Obesity is an epidemic that can be partially addressed by expert, compassionate weight loss surgery, comprehensive after-care, and a patient's commitment to change his or her lifestyle through diet and exercise.

We are medical professionals who are not only committed to the highest standards of surgical technique, but are wholly committed to excellence in patient care. We understand that bariatric surgery affects patients physically and emotionally, and we provide support every step of the way - from choosing the best surgery to addressing your personal weight loss challenges and goals and preparing for surgery, to recovery, after-care, and long-term support. Our patients know that they have a partner in their weight loss surgery with the Nicholson Clinic.

And the word is spreading! In addition to Dr. Nicholson being named one of D Magazine's "Top Bariatric" doctors for 13 years, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) recognizes Dr. Nicholson as an MBSAQIP Verified Surgeon for Baylor Scott & White Regional Medical Center at Plano, a facility that has been awarded the Blue Distinction designation by Blue Cross Blue Shield.
