A website for weight loss surgery patients and people who care for them.

Please join us IN-PERSON for the Texas Association for Bariatric Surgery 2021 Annual Meeting taking place July 31, 2021 at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center in Austin, Texas.

The TABS Annual Meeting is an exciting and educational event that brings together professionals from around the state who have an interest in weight loss surgery. There will be dietitians, exercise personnel, behavioral health specialists, bariatric surgeons, and plastic surgeons presenting topics that are important for creating long-term success after weight loss surgery.

Saturday, July 31, will start at 7:30am with breakfast with a full day of topics including two mandated Ethics Credits for Opiods and Human Trafficking.

Welcome to TABS

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.
