Stephen V. Hamn, MD Bariatric Center
I just wanted to say that I had gastroplasty surgery many many years ago...1998 with Dr Stephen V Hamn in Plano, Texas and he saved my life. He is an amazing surgeon and I highly recommend him. His honesty before the surgery advising that the success is only what I put into it was extremely helpful & on point. If you are thinking of having WLS I highly recommend Dr. Hamn...I haven't seen him since my surgery which was almost 25yrs ago, but I felt compelled to give him a 5-star review because over 20+ years later and I am doing extremely well and although eating right and working out daily is a life long commitment that surgery cannot fix, it has been an up & down cycle to some degree, but I've never come close to my heaviest weight which was approximately 350lbs at one point. The gastroplasty surgery & Dr. Hamn's advise that it was a "tool" not a "fix all" is what has keep me on track for almost 25yrs.Oct. 12, 2021
I had RNY gastric bypass with Dr. Hamn in March of 2012. I was very nervous about my initial appointment, but Dr. Hamn put me at ease with his clear plan of action and with his calm and reassuring demeanor. Because of two previous C-sections, my surgery was much more difficult than he'd initially anticipated. Still, he went the extra mile to safely work around scar tissue and avoided having to open me up completely. I was relieved and so appreciative afterwards! 90 lbs later, I'm still working on losing the last 35 lbs of my goal. The nutrition advice at Dr. Hamn's office has been invaluable post surgery for me and I appreciate the very personable encouragements the staff has always offered. I have not had any problems during appointments. I homeschool,so my two boys accompany me to all office visits. We have never had a problem nor had to wait longer than we'd expected. I would recommend using Dr. Hamn to anyone. I have complete confidence in his abilities as a surgeon. I feel my results are a testimony to the benefits bypass surgery can offer anyone serious about using it as a tool to get healthier.
So, everyone has faults, we are human. If you care about promtness, he is not the doctor for you. Every appointment I've had with Dr. Hamn I've had to wait at least an hour. One appointment, which I had my two toddlers and husband waiting on me, took 2.5 hours to see the doctor. I arrived at 3:30pm and I wasn't seen by Dr. Hamn until after 6pm. This was VERY, VERY upsetting for me. So, for this reason, I would have to NOT give Dr. Hamn a good reccommendation. He did a good job on my surgery, knew what he was doing, experienced; but had no concern for my schedule whatsoever. I would reccommend the sleeve surgery to a friend, but not Dr. Hamn.

Dr. Hamn did a great job! My liver didn't shrink after the fast like it should have. I have a short abdomen, and he was still able to complete the surgery laparoscopic! No huge vertical scar! He is very skilled! I'm 20 days out and in no pain at all.
For future patients, you are in good hands.
He and his office are top notch. They are very helpful, answered every question with precision and care. I rate him and his office a 10! Thank you Dr. Hamn.
I had my surgery on 04/22/10 and I've already lost 10% of my body weight.

This doctor is a very nice down to earth honest man. He takes his time with patients and is very truthful not matter what. His office is awesome and so is his staff. He puts no pressure on you and does not rush by you! In the metroplex this surgeon has done the most surgeries for the most amount of years! He is like talking to a member of your own family! I trust this doctor 100 percent!

Dr. Hamn is wonderful. He explained this whole process of the surgery so simply so I (who was a nervous wreck at the time) could understand everything that would happen. My surgery is on December 18th and I honestly have no reservations because I have all my faith in God, and that through Him Dr. Hamn will do a wonderful job with my VSG.
