  • About Me

    Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, M.D., F.A.C.S., has been serving patients with compassionate care for over 30 years. As a general and vascular surgeon he was the first doctor in Houston to propose, research and adopt the benefits of laparoscopic surgery for procedures previously unconsidered. He has specialized in bariatric surgery for more than 20 years, routinely accepts referrals on the most challenging weight reduction surgical candidates who have been previously denied by other surgical professionals, especially the super-morbidly obese (over 600 pounds).

    Dr. Nowzaradan is a leader in the performance of surgical techniques laparoscopically. Today, surgeries of all types, not just bariatric, are performed using the less invasive technique. Dr. Nowzaradan has published numerous papers on laparoscopy. Prior to his accomplishments, many within the medical community thought is theories of laparoscopially performing various open procedures was impossible. Today, several years later, they are a common place.
