On the Journey to a New Life: Trinity Bariatric Institute
When it comes to losing weight, there are so many options out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Unfortunately, a lot of those options don’t guide you and nurture you through your weight loss journey. They just take your money and leave you to succeed or fail on your own.
This is definitely not the case at Trinity Bariatric Institute. Dr. David Dyslin and his caring staff walk with you every step of the way on your journey to a new life. Because that’s what they offer – a new way of living.
A native of Knoxville, Tennessee, Dr. Dyslin has been practicing in North Texas for almost 25 years. When I asked him why he chose bariatric surgery as his focus, he replied, “I chose Bariatric surgery because it is one of the few medical specialties that offers the opportunity to cure patients of disease and not just treat it. Much of modern medicine is relegated to throwing more pills at people, and I think patients want more than that. They want to be healthy, and with the help of Bariatric surgery they can be!”
The first thing you will notice is that everyone at Trinity Bariatric Institute truly cares about you. “You’re not just a number here,” said Ashley DeLo, who has worked with Dr. Dyslin for several years. “He’s so caring. He really wants what’s best for the individual patient.”
Trinity Bariatric Institute offers a variety of weight loss options, and Dr. Dyslin and the staff will help you decide which is best for you. From the Orbera® Gastric Balloon to minimally invasive gastric sleeve, Dr. Dyslin will help you decide which option will not only yield the greatest success but also will fit into your life.
“But wait,” I hear you say. “Tell me a little more about this Orbera Gastric Balloon.”
The Orbera® Gastric Balloon is a great option for people who do not want to undergo surgery. The Orbera® balloon is placed in the stomach, where it helps you feel full and sated, reducing the amount of food you eat. Patients with the Orbera® balloon can lose up to 3 times the amount of weight compared to diet and exercise alone with fewer side effects than surgery.
Speaking of diet, Trinity Bariatric Institute has a dietician on staff who will help you get ready for surgery (if that is what you and Dr. Dyslin decide what is best for you) and will help you learn how to shop, cook, and eat afterward. Damla Hovland, the registered dietician on staff, supports Orbera Gastric Balloon patients for six months with their diets. She also offers a full medication weight loss plan if surgery is not right for you.
“This isn’t a diet,” Ashley DeLo stressed. “This is a lifestyle change. You’re changing the way your body processes things. And we’re here to support you as you go through those changes.”
To better serve their patients, Trinity Bariatric Institute has recently opened a satellite office on Edwards Ranch Road near the Shops at Clearfork while maintaining their original office on North Beach Street. No matter where you live in Fort Worth, they are convenient to you!
When asked what she likes most about working with Dr. Dyslin, Ashley answered, “It’s really rewarding. We establish relationships with our patients and get to help them get their lives back.”
