  • About Me

    Experience is important when choosing a bariatric surgeon. Myur Srikanth, MD, FACS, has been performing bariatric surgery exclusively since 2000 and has performed more than 3,500 weight loss surgeries, with over 2,500 of those surgeries done laparoscopically or robotically. Dr. Srikanth performs virtually every operation that is currently available to treat the disease of obesity.

    Robotic &Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery

    Dr. Srikanth specializes in laparoscopic and robot-assisted weight loss surgery. Benefits include reduced trauma to the body, faster recovery, less chance of infection and less post-operative pain.

    Dr. Srikanth is one of the few bariatric surgeons in the Pacific Northwest who performs the duodenal switch robotically. This surgery has one of the best track records for long-term, durable weight loss and maintenance and has a nearly 99 percent cure rate for obesity-related diabetes.

    Firsts/Accomplishments

    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, April 2003). Dr. Srikanth was the first surgeon in the Pacific Northwest to perform the laparoscopic malabsorptive (medial) roux-en-y gastric bypass using the jejunal interposition technique—presented at the International Federation for Obesity Surgery (IFSO) meeting in Sydney, Australia, Sept. 2006.

    Cosmetic Surgery after Weight Loss

    With American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) training, Dr. Srikanth also specializes in body contouring after weight loss, including tummy tuck, body lift, liposuction, arm lifts and breast lift and augmentation. He has performed more than 200 of these operations.
