What Sets Us Apart
Dr. Cribbins and Dr. McCalman are compassionate board-certified surgeons that specialize in general and bariatric surgery.
We believe that excellence in performing surgery and the medical management of our patients is derived from education, training, and experience. We keep current on the latest techniques and standards so we can provide our patients with the optimal results they desire. We focus on thorough exams that check your total health before performing any procedure. We employ a friendly team approach to patient care that includes: surgeons, psychologists, nutritionists, and highly trained staff.
Texas Center for Bariatrics & Advanced Surgery is one of the few bariatric centers in the country offering comprehensive care that combines surgical and non-surgical medical weight management in the treatment of obesity. This combination provides the optimal results patients desire.
All appointments that you will have will be with one of our doctors.
We also know that surgery is never routine, no matter how many thousands of times we have performed such procedures. We never take for granted that you have placed a great deal of confidence in us. For this reason, a complete review of your medical history, current health, your expectations for surgery, and all questions are answered before proceeding with a procedure.
For our bariatric patients, our hospitals are MBSAQIP accredited centers by The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and The American Society For Metabolic And Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The ASMBS awards this MBSAQIP designation to leading centers in the field who provide exceptional patient care, demonstrate superior surgical skills and extraordinary hospital facilities. We take tremendous pride in this honor.
As your health care professionals, we want you to be confident that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to stay healthy before and after your surgery. To give you the best possible service and results we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend surgery lectures, meetings, and related conventions to stay informed on the most current techniques, latest innovations, and the newest equipment that a practice can utilize to provide state of the art procedures. Also, being members of various professional associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
