Plano, Texas – The Nicholson Clinic is proud to announce that all three of its surgeons have been certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS) with the Focused Practice Designation (FPD) in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (MBS). This certification is a testament to the expertise and dedication of the Nicholson Clinic’s surgeons, as only a small percentage of bariatric surgeons have this designation. Out of thousands of bariatric surgeons in the US, only 220 currently have this designation.

The ABS Focused Practice Designation is an important credential that recognizes bariatric surgeons who demonstrate exceptional proficiency in metabolic and bariatric surgery. The designation is awarded to surgeons who have met rigorous criteria, including completing at least 50 metabolic and bariatric surgery cases in the past two years, passing an oral examination, and completing continuing medical education requirements.

“We are incredibly proud to have all three of our surgeons receive this prestigious certification,” said Dr. Nicholson, founder of the Nicholson Clinic. “Our patients can rest assured that they are receiving care from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable bariatric surgeons in the United States. We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care possible, and this certification helps ensure that we continue to meet those standards.”

The Nicholson Clinic specializes in providing comprehensive weight loss solutions tailored to each individual patient’s needs. The clinic offers a variety of procedures including sleeve gastrectomy surgery, gastric bypass surgery, duodenal switch, and revisions. Plus, Nicholson Clinic partners with experts to offer nutrition counseling, exercise instruction, psychological support, patient support groups, and more. The clinic has been helping individuals achieve their weight loss goals for over 25 years.

In addition to their extensive experience performing metabolic and bariatric surgeries, all three Nicholson Clinic surgeons are also fellows of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and members of the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES). This ensures that each surgeon maintains high standards for safety and quality care throughout their practice.
