Charles J. Keith, Jr., MD, is a bariatric surgeon who practices at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Tyler. Dr. Keith believes “the care for each patient must be individualized to that patient’s health goals. There should be no ‘one-size-fits-all’ care plan.”
Board certified in general surgery, Dr. Keith was inspired to devote his career to obesity when he discovered that the benefits of bariatric surgery extend far beyond weight loss. He performs sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, duodenal switch, revisional bariatric surgery, and endoscopic therapies at the UT Health Tyler Bariatric Center. He also is trained in anti-reflux surgery, other disease processes of the foregut, and all areas of general surgery, including cholecystectomy and hernia repair.
