Dr. Lee at Lee Bariatrics

Dr. Lee is Board Certified, Fellowship Trained & Experienced

Michael J. Lee, MD, FACS, FASMBS is the Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton. Dr. Lee specializes in advanced laparoscopy and other minimally invasive surgical techniques, including all forms of weight-loss/bariatric surgery & revisional surgery. He is board certified in general surgery, fellowship trained at Cedars Sinai in L.A. and has been director of bariatric surgery at UT Southwestern from 2012-2015.

Why choose Lee Bariatrics?

We are conveniently located at the apex of the north Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

Our multidisciplinary & efficient practice eliminates many of the costly layers that typically separate the patient from the physician compared to other practices. You have direct access to Dr. Lee. Our team consists of a bariatric coordinator, an insurance expert, a Registered Dietician, and physician assistant dedicated to your well-being not just before surgery but long after surgery as well. We strive to continue relationships with our patients to ensure lifelong success.

We practice evidence-based medicine without gimmicks. 99% of operations are performed laparoscopically through small incisions to minimize pain, hospital stay, & also cost. Smaller incisions reduce hernia & infection rates compared to a larger single incision or SILS incision. Most patients equate the experience to a gallbladder removal. Not only do we treat obesity, we also emphasize studying the causes of obesity to provide individualized personal care to produce better and longer lasting results.

What weight loss services are offered at Lee Bariatrics?

Only evidence-based proven weight loss methods are offered ranging from medical management to incisionless endoscopic procedures to minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery featuring sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and revisional surgery. The key to weight loss is recognizing what tools are available and learning how to use these tools with a dedicated team invested in your continued long term success.
