David Dyslin, MD

In a perfect world, we’d all feel as passionate about the work we do as Dr. David Dyslin feels about his bariatric surgery career. Or as he puts it,

“My passion and driving force has been to improve the quality and length of my patients’ lives through the promise of bariatric surgery.”

It’s what gets him up each morning and what helps him fall to sleep with a feeling of accomplishment each night.

“My journey has been unique, in that I began my surgery training at the time of open surgery and have practiced during the birth and maturing of laparoscopy in general and bariatric surgery. And I’m also skilled in robotic surgery”

Dr. Dyslin said. “I think exposure to all three has made me a better surgeon.”

Dr. Dyslin advocates a hands-on approach. “I see all of my bariatric patients myself and am able to walk with them through the whole journey,” he said. “The best part of my day is talking with my patients, getting to know them, and being a part of their weightloss/ health-restoring process.”

As early as 8th grade, Dr. Dyslin knew he wanted to be a surgeon, thanks to the inspiration of his best friend’s father, a well respected local physician. Bariatrics has been a rewarding field for him. “Bariatric surgery has enabled me to offer my patients the opportunity to lead healthier, fuller, more productive lives,” he said. “I’m able to empower them to take their health into their own hands. Then I’m privileged to see how happy and full their lives can become.”

Board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Dyslin also performs robotic surgery and abdominal wall reconstruction for hernia repair as well as laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery right here in Southeast Tarrant County. He is quick to give credit where credit it due. “I couldn’t do what I do without an outstanding bariatric team including my office staff, dietician, licensed counselor, and my OR team,” he said. “They give their best to my patients every day!”

When not on the job, Dr. Dyslin enjoys hiking, gardening, and traveling to see his children to get caught up on their lives. A firm believer in giving back, he participates in medical mission trips to Haiti and Nicaragua with his church and attends meetings to improve care in resource-limited environments.

“These activities always remind me how blessed we are to live in Texas and of our obligation to share our time and talent with those less fortunate.”

Dr. Dyslin is now accepting new patients.
