Dallas bariatric surgeon, Dr. Fox is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (F.A.C.S.). This is the highest recognition that your doctor has specialized knowledge and training related to the pre-operative evaluation and diagnosis, operative technical skills/ability and post-operative management of surgical problems. It is also just as important to know when not to operate and treat with a medical nonsurgical approach – some of the best surgery is nonsurgical! At the same time, if an operation is indicated, good judgment is necessary to recommend the appropriate operation for the individual that will give the best results.
