Dr. Joseph Cribbins and Dr. Stephen Hamn
Thank you for visiting our web site. We know you have a choice when selecting a surgeon, thank you for choosing us. Most likely you were referred to us by your family physician or friend.
For our general surgery patients, Dr. Hamn and Dr. Cribbins will explore all treatment options with you, including medications and lifestyle changes to avoid surgery if possible.
General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs, e.g. intestines, including esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts. It also includes the thyroid gland and hernias.
For our bariatric patients, we offer both surgical and physician supervised non-surgical options. The decision to have a surgical weight loss procedure takes a great deal of thought. At Texas Center for Obesity & General Surgery, we offer the latest bariatric surgical procedures.
Our role as surgeons and physicians includes being both technical advisors and counselors. It is important to determine if you are a good candidate for bariatric surgery and have realistic expectations. We will review your medical history, lifestyle, goals, and expectations. We will discuss both surgical and non-surgical options available and together decide which best suits you.
Both Dr. Stephen V. Hamn and Dr. Joseph Cribbins have earned excellent reputations for their general surgery, bariatric surgery, and laparoscopic techniques. They were both voted by their peer’s for D magazines best Dr.’s in Dallas for the past several years in a row.
In addition our practice has received the prestigious accreditation of Bariatric Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
