  • About Me

    Laparoscopic & Robot Assisted Weight Loss Surgery
    Board certified general and bariatric surgeon, Myur S. Srikanth, MD, FACS, has been performing bariatric surgery exclusively since the year 2000. He has performed more than 3,500 weight loss surgeries, with more than 2,500 of those done laparoscopically. He performs virtually every operation that is currently available to treat obesity, including:

    • Sleeve gastrectomy
    • Duodenal switch (one of the few surgeons in the Pacific Northwest to perform this operation robotically)
    • Single-anastomosis duodenal switch **NEW OPERATION**
    • Gastric bypass (proximal & medial)
    • Adjustable gastric band (Lap-BAND®, AGB)
    • Revision surgery – including conversion from AGB to sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch, single-anastomosis duodenal switch, proximal & medial gastric bypass; revision of gastric bypass (proximal to medial gastric bypass); as well as laparoscopic repositioning or replacement of AGB

    Dr. Srikanth specializes in laparoscopic and robot-assisted weight loss surgery. He is one of the few bariatric surgeons in the Pacific Northwest who performs the duodenal switch robotically. Benefits of minimally-invasive surgery include reduced trauma to the body, faster recovery, less chance of infection and less post-operative pain.

    Dr. Srikanth also performs the single-anastomosis duodenal switch, a new operation with a longer common channel than the standard duodenal switch. For this operation, stomach capacity is reduced the same as the sleeve gastrectomy and the standard duodenal switch, but there is less malabsorption than the standard duodenal switch. 

    Dr. Srikanth was among the first surgeons in the Puget Sound area to implant the Lap-BAND® on August 15, 2001 after FDA approval. His team has reported the best three-year percent excess weight loss (EWL) result (72%) with the Lap-BAND® device in the U.S. (Obes Surg 13 [2]: 275-280, Apr 2003). Dr. Srikanth was the first surgeon to perform the laparoscopic medial roux-en-y gastric bypass using the jejunal interposition technique—presented at the International Federation for Obesity Surgery (IFSO) meeting, Sydney, Australia, Sep 2006.

    Body Contouring After Weight Loss
    In addition, Dr. Srikanth is American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) fellowship trained and performs body contouring operations for patients to address excess skin and fat after weight loss, including:

    • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
    • Lower body lift (bilateral gluteal & thigh lift)
    • Arm lift
    • Liposuction & liposculpting
    • Breast lift & augmentation

    In addition, Dr. Srikanth and nurse practitioner, Kristen Howard, have specialized training in non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, including Botox®, Juvederm® dermal fillers and Latisse®.
