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 15,000 patients reverse obesity by offering affordable weight loss surgery options, including Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric 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 11 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.
