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.

Dr. Chen came into the room with the most cheerful disposition. You can tell that he has not lost his bedside manner like some doctors do. He was very informative & knowledgeable & was able to put all of my fears at ease. The office staff were very helpful & they know what they're doing when dealing with the insurance companies. I would highly recommend this set of doctors to anyone wanting bariatric surgery!View on Google
I did a lot and a lot of research! I came across Texas Center for Bariatrics. I had 2 different offices to give a call for a consult. I went with my heart and choose them! It is a BIG decision to actually come in for a consult. From the receptionists to my surgeon Dr. Chen everyone is so heartwarming and professional. I am now 2 weeks post op. And feel GREAT. I am very thankful for everything they have done and will continue to do for me. Plus they have Marty! Which is sooo adorable my son loves him!View on Google
