The Nicholson Clinic has helped over 25,000 patients from all over the United States and worldwide touching the lives of people in 11 other countries.

Dallas, TX, May 23, 2022 – The Nicholson Clinic offers its patients the latest treatment options for weight loss using rising technology, which includes robotic bariatric surgery. Nicholson Clinic offers a variety of procedures which ultimately include the following:

LAP-BAND® (Laparoscopic banding) is less common than it was in years past but is still an available option to reduce the capacity of the stomach itself. LAP-BAND® significantly restricts the amount of food that can be consumed. The whole procedure consists of fastening a band around the stomach resulting in a smaller stomach. It is adjustable and reversible.

Gastric Bypass surgery makes the stomach much smaller and allows food to avoid part of the small intestine, resulting in fewer calories being absorbed. This procedure also helps with appetite suppression. Most patients are able to go home the day after surgery with up to 70-80% surplus weight loss within 12 months.

Sleeve Gastrectomy (also known as Gastric Sleeve surgery) can be a wonderful solution for those who want the benefits of Gastric Bypass but are concerned about potential long-term side effects. Like Gastric Bypass, the Gastric Sleeve involves resection of the portion of the stomach that produces ghrelin – the hormone that is the major contributor to the feeling of hunger. As a result, patients who undergo Sleeve Gastrectomy have a smaller stomach which aids in portion control, and report a reduced appetite, allowing them to lose weight.

The Nicholson Clinic surgeons operate out of several hospitals and outpatient surgery centers throughout the DFW Metroplex offering convenience with the highest standard of patient care. With credentials at these top facilities, they can offer patients the assurance of safety and high-quality care.
