Bariatric & General Surgery

Dr. Richard Novack is a general surgeon with specialty training in minimally invasive, advanced laparoscopic, and bariatric surgery. What Dr. Novack essentially excels at is performing major abdominal surgeries with only tiny incisions.

He was born and raised in northern New Jersey, just across the river from New York City, and trained at NYU and the famous (or "infamous") Bellevue Hospitals.

After several years of practice in New Jersey, Dr. Novack and his wife decided to relocate to the Dallas-Fort Worth area to raise their family.

Dr. Novack’s talent for Bariatric surgery stems from his passion for helping transform people’s everyday lives.
