Welcome to Texas Advanced Surgical & Bariatrics, a general surgery practice specializing in advanced laparoscopic, robotic, and bariatric surgery. Joel A. Rodriguez, M.D., F.A.C.S. established the practice with the following goals in mind: 1) to provide thorough and compassionate preoperative guidance, 2) to achieve surgical excellence in the operating room, and 3) to help patients achieve long-term postoperative success.

“Dr. Rodriguez is pretty cool in my book. He made this probably the most comfortable surgery I have ever had. He’s encouraging and is there every step of the way. He’s pretty dapper as well. He cares and listens to your needs. Totally would recommend him to others — 5 stars.”
“Since September 27th, I have lost 136 pounds. I feel great, I have more energy for life activities. I would suggest to anyone struggling with being overweight to consider surgery and follow the the doctor’s orders. They will love the results.”
“Dr. Rodriguez is awesome! I was 45 years old, 5’2″ and 320 pounds! I was loosing a battle I didn’t know how to win. I was pre-diabetic, had IBS, no gallbladder, swollen joints and ankles, the list goes on. I was miserable! This has been the best thing I have ever done for myself!! I’m now very active and enjoying life the way I should be! Thank you Dr. Rodriguez for helping me get my life back!”
“I did a lot of research in advance of my first appointment. Dr Rodriguez was just as genuine and knowledgeable as in the videos I had seen…but even MORE compassionate and caring! Letty has been wonderful with my preparation support!”
“I can say I was blessed to meet the most kind and professional doctor In my life. I had surgery on June 22 (five months ago) and have already lost 70 pounds! Thank you Dr. Rodriguez and all your staff for making my dream come true!!!”
“I have lost the equivalent of an entire person; approximately 146 lbs to date. I am approximately 1 year post op. I am enjoying my life without the constant body aches or shortness of breath. I am also more active and less fatigued, thanks to Dr. Joel Rodriguez and his team helping me through it all.”
“Dr. Rodriguez is literally the best! He is very kind and has helped me transform my life in sooo many ways and I couldn’t be more grateful that he did my surgery! He is very much a hands on surgeon who is with you every step of the way! He is humble, smart and compasionate”
“Since being referred to Dr. Rodriguez, my life has changed! No more back pain, knee pain, or shortness of breath. I can now sit comfortably in chairs, and I no longer need extenders to fasten my seat belt on a plane. Having a gastric sleeve was the best decision I ever made!”
