  • About Me

    Dr. Younan Nowzaradan has been serving patients with compassionate care for over 30 years. He has dedicated much of his career to advocating quality medical management for those struggling with obesity. Dr. Nowzaradan firmly believes in the care of the obese without discrimination or prejudice.

    Dr. Nowzaradan, A Leader in Laparoscopic Surgical Techniques

    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. While others were limiting weight loss surgery to those who weighed under 300-lbs, Dr. Younan Nowzaradan was already performing safe laparoscopic weight loss surgery on super morbidly obese individuals who weighed more than 600-lbs. Prior to his accomplishments, many within the medical community thought his theories of laparoscopically performing various open procedures was impossible. Today, several years later, they are now commonplace.

    A Beacon of Hope as the My 600 lb Life Doctor

    In 2003, he performed laparoscopic weight loss surgery on the world’s heaviest dad, heaviest mom, and heaviest teen. He is featured in the hit TLC shows, Half Ton Killer as well as My 600-lb Life with the hope of influencing the public and the medical community to change their bias and negative opinion regarding severely obese individuals. Dr. Nowzaradan has become a beacon of hope for those who have struggled with their weight. He has changed the lives of many when others weren’t willing to help them. As a doctor, he always helps to heal those that need it most.
