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. 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!!

Da Vinci Surgery FOR GENERAL AND BARIATRIC SURGERY

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 Xi raises the standard of minimally invasive care with a high-definition 3D view for the bariatric surgeon. Da Vinci's smaller incisions and greater precision mean less pain, reduced scarring, and faster healing.

The advanced capabilities of Da Vinci Xi are even more enhanced in the hands of our experienced surgeon. Drs. Cribbins and Chen have used the Da Vinci Xi system to help bariatric surgery patients lose weight since 2012.

Mickey Patel, MSN, APRN, FNP-C Nurse Practitioner

Mickey grew up in Athens, Georgia and earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Georgia. His degree  led him to the hospitality business where he bought and managed a hotel for many years.

Mickey decided to leave the hotel, and the hospitality management business behind and began his medical career in 2016.  With a change in careers he went back to school and attended the Chamberlain College of Nursing earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.  

With his nursing degree, he then enjoyed 5 fulfilling years as an operating room nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Plano. He worked a variety of service lines from orthopedics, urology, gynecology, vascular and bariatrics... which is where he found his true passion being in bariatrics. 

While operating beside Dr. Cribbins for five years he fell in love with bariatric surgery and how life changing the surgery was for patients. He decided to go back to school once again, while still working in the operating room, to become a nurse practitioner so that he could assist Dr. Cribbins in clinic, as well as in the operating room. 

Mickey earned a Master of Science in Nursing FNP at the University of Texas, he is a nationally certified nurse practitioner specializing in bariatrics and certified in DAVINCI robotic assisted surgery. 

You will find Mickey in clinic partnering with patients along their weight loss surgery journey and supporting them every step of the way. He can also be found in the operating room assisting both Dr. Cribbins and Dr. Chen during surgery.

He is a proud member of the American College of Nurse Practitioners and the Texas Nurse Practitioners. 

Mickey and his wife, Niky, along with their two children are happy to call Frisco, TX home.  When outside the office and operating room you can find him playing and watching basketball, football, and tennis.  His secret passion is cooking and he is a gourmet chef... maybe owning a restaurant is in his future.
