Advanced Technology Used by Dr. Chen
Dr. Chen exclusively uses the state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgical system to perform surgeries with exceptional precision and accuracy. He specializes in ultra-minimally invasive da Vinci general and bariatric surgery.
Robotic surgery involves small incisions instead of a large abdominal one, rendering it less invasive than traditional bariatric surgery. Patients can reap many potential benefits of robotic-assisted surgery, including reduced pain, less scarring, and a quicker return to normal activities.
Life Outside of the Practice
5-Star Reviews Praising Our Plano Practice And Award-Winning Surgeons
Fantastic experience from start to finish. My insurance covers bariatric surgery but I had no idea what that entailed to get surgery. Dr Chen and his office patiently explained everything to me and my husband. By the the time surgery day came and went… all I can say is I wish I had had this life changing surgery early. Good bye diabetes ! Hello healthy me !
Every time that I have visited the office the staff has been amazing. Professional is very important to me when entering an office and I have had nothing less. Friendly staff. You are treated like family.View On Google
