About Dallas Weight loss Surgeon Dr. Todd McCarty

Dr. Todd McCarty has been serving patients in the fields of bariatric and general surgery for nearly 30 years. As the creator and founder of the Baylor Weight Loss Program in 1988, Dr. McCarty is known for his innovation in bariatric surgery, his compassion and his experience. He developed the McCarty Mini Sleeve procedure, the only true minimally invasive gastric sleeve procedure available, and remains the only surgeon who offers this trademarked surgery.

Dr. McCarty is passionate about helping patients reclaim their lives through a minimally invasive approach that allows them to resume their normal lifestyle within days after surgery. Dr. McCarty also specializes in bariatric revision surgery for patients who have experienced complications from a previous surgery or who are experiencing weight regain after surgery.

First Baptist Medical Center Bariatric Surgeries and Services

Gastric Bypass

Long considered the gold standard in weight loss procedures and gastric surgery, gastric bypass involves creating a small stomach pouch that is then connected to the small intestine. The size of the stomach is reduced from the size of a football to the size of a lemon, and the remainder of the stomach is bypassed along with the first portion of the small intestine.

Surgical Revisions

The perfect weight loss operation does not exist. All bariatric surgeries have limitations, and weight regain can occur for a variety of reasons. Patients who are experiencing complications from a previous weight loss surgery or who have begun to regain weight lost following their initial procedure may benefit from bariatric revision surgery. Some of the most common surgical revisions include band-to-sleeve, band-to-bypass, bypass-to-sleeve, and sleeve-to-bypass or duodenal switch.

Mini Sleeve

Sleeve gastrectomy surgery (also known as gastric sleeve) is the most common weight loss surgery performed in the United States today. The average procedure takes one to two hours to complete and typically requires a two- to three-day hospital stay after surgery. The Mini Sleeve, developed and trademarked by Dr. McCarty, is an advanced, minimally invasive surgical technique that uses natural entrances to the abdominal cavity, avoiding the many painful incisions in the abdominal wall that are often required with the standard gastric sleeve procedure. This novel surgical technique, known as NOTES (Natural Oriface Transendoluminal Endoscopic Surgery) results in less pain, lower risk of complications, faster recovery, few scars, and no hospital stay.
