Grand Prairie, TX – June 24, 2014 /MM-PressAdvantage/ —

Texas General Hospital General Surgery Department announced today that Bariatric Specialist, Glen M. Ihde M.D, will be joining the team of surgeons at the Arlington offices. Dr. Ihde specializes in the bariatric and general surgical treatments, including Laparoendoscopy.

Dr. Ihde joins four other highly respected surgeons in the practice. Texas General Hospital is the only hospital serving Grand Prairie providing exceptional and individualized surgical care to members of the Grand Prairie community. “We are pleased to have Dr. Ihde join our medical team. He is an excellent surgeon that will benefit our community greatly. His experience and skills are a strong addition to our talented team of world-class physicians,” said Suleman, the hospital’s President and CEO.

According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, an estimated 177,600 people had bariatric surgery in 2006. About 15 million or 1 in 50 adults in the U.S. have morbid obesity, which is associated with more than 30 other diseases and conditions including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, hypertension, asthma, cancer, joint problems and infertility. Dr. Ihde performs all types of laparoscopic bariatric surgery including gastric bypass and advanced laparoscopic general surgery. Advantages to laparoscopic surgery include shorter hospital stays and expedited recovery times, as well as minimized discomfort and complications compared to open surgery.

Glen M. Ihde M.D provides surgical and comprehensive healthcare services. Patients also have access to a state-of-the-art facility that includes radiology and imaging services and a team of physicians that care deeply about patients, offering patients high quality, personalized health care. “I understand the importance of getting to know patients personally, their medical history, their family, and all of the factors that have an impact on their health,” said Glen M. Ihde M.D.

Texas General Hospital at Grand Prairie is also proud to provide a wealth of patient education materials online at Texas General Hospital.
