Much has changed, over the past seven months. But David C. Dyslin, MD, FACS has stayed the course in his mission to restore quality of life to his bariatric patients through advanced weight loss surgeries including laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gastric bypass, conversion of lap band to sleeve or bypass, duodenal switch. “I’m seeing patients in the office safely with strict cleaning and Covid-19 procedures in place,” Dr. Dyslin said. “But we’re also offering virtual visits for new and follow-up visits. Patients are able to see me face to face from the safety of their home. And as always, non-surgical and dietary support are also available.”
Because each patient—and each weight-loss journey—is unique, Dr. Dyslin tailors his treatment to each of his patients. “The best part of my day is still talking with my patients, getting to know them, and being a part of their weight-loss/health-restoring process,” he said. “I still see all of my bariatric patients myself so I can walk with them through the whole process.”
Dr. Dyslin places an emphasis on patient education and empowerment. “These are men and women who’ve felt helpless to do anything about their weight and have watched their health deteriorate, for years,” he said. “It’s my privilege to put them in the driver’s seat as they realize they can shed unwanted pounds, regain their health, keep the weight off, and begin living their best life.” Imagine the excitement of buying your first pair of high heels in years, the simple joy of sitting on a porch swing with your children, or the ability to stop taking medication you’ve relied upon. These are a few of the successes Dr. Dyslin celebrates with his patients, every day.
Board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Dyslin is also specialized in hernia repair and laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery that provides patients with immediate relief. Dr. Dyslin also offers robotic-assisted bariatric surgery for qualified candidates that ensures faster recovery time and fewer complications.
When not on the job, he enjoys hiking, gardening, and traveling to see his kids and get caught up on their lives. A firm believer in giving back, he participates in medical mission trips to Haiti and Nicaragua with his church and attends meetings to improve care in resource-limited environments. “These activities always remind me how blessed we are to live in Texas and of our obligation to share our time and talent with those less fortunate.” Dr. Dyslin is now accepting new patients.
