As a native of Richardson, Texas, Preeti Malladi, MD is excited to serve the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. As can be seen from her extensive list of educational degrees and awards, Dr. Malladi is constantly pushing her and her team to stay abreast of the latest advancements in Bariatric, General and Minimally Invasive surgery.  Following medical school, Dr. Malladi intentionally chose a longer residency program that incorporated an additional year of research, so she could learn first-hand the latest in surgical procedures.  Following residency, she accepted a spot in a prestigious fellowship on minimally invasive surgery, gaining even further training on the latest advanced laparoscopic, endoscopic, single­-incision, and scarless surgical procedures. And now, with over a decade of experience in treating patients, Dr. Malladi still exceeds the number of continuing medical education (CME) hours required of her, so she can be in the best position possible to help her patients.

Her passion is to improve patients’ lives through compassionate surgical care with the highest level of clinical and technical skill. Dr. Malladi uses the most innovative technologies and works in close partnership with the patient’s primary medical team.

An integral component of her practice is building a relationship with her patients. “Patients know they’ll see me at each visit and while they’re in the hospital,” she says. “Particularly with bariatric patients, I have a long­term relationship with them after surgery to ensure they’re successful.”

About Dr. Preeti Malladi and Malladi Bariatrics

About Our Process

Surgery is just a component of success for weight loss. Malladi Bariatrics & Advanced Surgery has a multi­disciplinary program to help a patient look at their nutrition and fitness schedule, as well as the psychological factors contributing to obesity. This pre­operative process allows our patients to make the necessary lifestyle modifications prior to surgery, and also get educated on the surgery itself and what it takes to be successful.

What Makes Malladi Bariatrics SO Different?

We focus on YOU, our patient!  Our practice applies a holistic, consultative and collaborative approach to our patient’s situations, and crafts an individual surgical solution that is customized for you. We incorporate your eating habits, fitness & activity level, and emotional strength into each and every plan, and gain buy-in from You on what the best surgical approach is for you at this stage in your life. We refer to each surgical plan as Your plan, as Your procedure, as Your next step towards a healthier life.
