Female Bariatric Surgeon

Dr. Kristin Patton, Arkansas' Only Female Bariatric Surgeon

As Arkansas' only female bariatric surgeon, Dr. Kristin Patton provides a unique perspective for her patients looking to lose weight. She chose bariatric surgery as her specialty when she realized the impact weight loss surgery can have on a patient's life. For her, it's about helping patients live the life they want to live without being held back by weight or other health issues caused by being overweight. 

Dr. Patton and her family live in Benton but she see's patients from across the state looking to lose weight. She currently has clinics in Benton and Little Rock. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Patton, fill out the form below or call 501.574.7171.


ORBERATM Balloon – No surgery! A balloon is inserted into the stomach and filled with saline solution, so you feel full with less food. LAP-BAND® System – A gastric band restricts your food intake, controlling hunger and changing the way you eat.

Sleeve Gastrectomy – This procedure gives you a smaller stomach so you feel fuller, sooner.

Gastric Bypass – The stomach is bypassed altogether in this procedure. Food is restricted and rerouted.

Gastric Band (Lap Band) – This procedure places an implant around the top part of the stomach. This controls how much food can enter the stomach.
