Dr. Cribbins and his staff are wonderful. I thought about doing the VSG for over two years. I decided to just do a consult and see where it goes. I was blessed to find Texas Center for Bariactrics but more thankful that my consult made my nerves go away. The staff was so welcoming and honestly Dr. Cribbins is the coolest doctor I’ve ever met! The whole process from consult, pre-op and surgery have been stress free and amazing. I know everyone’s journey is different but everything he stated that would happen during this journey has been spot on for me. I want to thank you guys for being so personal with patients care and so welcoming like family. Also who can forget about Marty! You definitely made my day at my follow up appointment buddy. Thank you Dr. Cribbins for giving me a new start for a longer life

My family has been working with Dr. Cribbins and his amazing staff since 2006 when he performed my husband's lap band procedure. I had the pleasure of his services in 2008 where I had my lapband put in. First of all, I have never felt so good about myself. This experience has helped me grow to understand that it is I who controls my body, not the other way around! Dr. Cribbins has always been patient and understands the difficulty in even having the courage to pursue bariatric treatment. His knowledge is beyond exceptional, wonderful bed side manner caring, and compassionate. Yesterday I brought my 19 year old daughter in for her first consultation and I couldn't be more grateful for his compassion and exceptional knowledge. He saw how down she was and he has given her hope that there is the potential for a better, healthier life to be had. He explained every detail and answered all of her questions. I love the patient success walls of before and after pictures. I know how grateful I am for Dr. Cribbins and it makes my heart swell to see how many of us who came to him out of desperation and seeing all of those smiling faces was amazing. As for the staff, I can't even begin to tell how fantastic they ALL are. Thank you to each and everyone of you. Without you guys, none of this could be such a wonderful, life changing experience. Marty, can't say enough about how cool he is My daughter only wants appointments on Tuesdays, lol.  We love you Dr. Cribbins and look forward to working with you for many years to come. Most of all, thank you for helping me find hope again!! Please never retire, lol!!

Da Vinci Surgery For General and Bariatric Surgery

da vinci xi weight loss surgery

 A New Level of Care With Advanced Technology

Texas Center for Bariatrics & Advanced Surgery uses the ultra minimally invasive Da Vinci Xi® surgical system for bariatric and general surgery. This advanced surgical technology eclipses standards set by older technologies such as traditional laparoscopic surgery.

While laparoscopic was once heralded for its "minimally" invasive capabilities, the Da Vinci's Xi sets the bar higher with its "ultra" minimally invasive standard of care and 3DHD vision of the operating field for the surgeon.  Da Vinci's smaller incisions and greater precision mean less pain, reduced scarring, and faster healing. In other words, the best patient results possible. 

Intuitive Surgical's Da Vinci Xi is the most advanced surgical system currently available for bariatric surgery and its advanced capabilities are enhanced in the hands of an experienced master.  

Dr. Cribbins has used the Da Vinci surgical system since 2012 and his years of hands-on experience have allowed him to master this incredible technology that translates movements to extend a surgeon's capabilities, range of motion, and precision.
