Plano, TX—[Date]—Dr. Joe Cribbins, head of the Texas Center for Bariatric and Advanced Surgery, a leading bariatric surgery provider in Dallas, today announced an expanded partnership with BariNation, a national bariatric education and support organization. This collaboration connects their pre and post-operative bariatric surgery and medical weight loss patients with comprehensive support and a connected community throughout their weight loss surgery journey.

“We prioritize offering our patients the most effective tools and resources to achieve lasting weight loss and improve their overall health,” said Dr. A. Joseph Cribbins III, MD, FASMBS, who is globally recognized and verified by the Surgical Review Corporation, for excellence in patient safety which is awarded to surgeons with the lowest complication rates in the world.  Since 2021, the practice has delivered better bariatric surgeries and outcomes for their patients using the Da Vinci Xi ® and now offers da Vinci 5, the latest for ultra minimally invasive surgery. 

He continues, saying “BariNation’s established support programs perfectly complement our surgical expertise by providing patients with the ongoing guidance and encouragement they need to thrive in the long term.”

BariNation’s virtual community platform offers a variety of programs designed to meet the individual needs of bariatric surgery patients, including weekly pre and post-operative support groups led by ASMBS-accredited bariatric therapists that are targeted to need and stage nutritional classes taught by registered dietitians with specializations in obesity and weight management, and meetup opportunities to connect with fellow patients in a safe and private digital space. Members of BariNation can access all of the support offered wherever they are through a robust online network of experts and peers. 

“We are thrilled to expand our long-running partnership with the Texas Center for Bariatrics and Advanced Surgery,” said April Williams, Founder and CEO of BariNation. “Our expert-led support offerings will equip their patients with the tools and resources they need to achieve lasting success after weight loss surgery. Dr. Joe,  Dr. Chen, and their amazing team have long supported BariNation, through their regular appearances on the BariNation Podcast, BariNation Membership Community and Instagram content offerings, including Talk with a Doc, Chat w/Chen and ongoing contributions to the BariNation weekly Struggle Bus. This expanded partnership speaks to their commitment to the holistic health of patients under their care.”

Patients now have access to a discounted monthly membership that will allow them to tap into over 70 virtual support groups and classes led by licensed and credentialed experts every month and meetups hosted by trained peer moderators. BariNations online educational platform gives members 24/7 access to on-demand resources, education, and community forums so they can always connect with accurate and relevant information to guide them along their journey.
