Join the Effort to Educate and Advocate for Weight Loss Surgery Patients

Foot Scale The Texas Association for Bariatric Surgery (TABS) is a resource for weight loss surgery physicians, surgeons and patients. The TABS serves patients and the medical professionals who care for them through education, wellness and advocacy efforts.

TABS physician and surgeon members share ideas in the education, prevention and treatment of obesity to improve patient outcomes, conduct patient education, promote healthy living and advocate for the rights of the obese.

Weight loss surgery patients are invited to join the effort by registering with TABS to receive updates and event notices, and to have your voices heard by legislators.

Together we will work to improve and change the lives of the obese and weight loss surgery patients across Texas.
