Dr. Felts' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Felts "Dr. Frank Felts is excited to become a part of the Memorial Medical Center team and provide a surgical weight loss solution to the people of New Mexico. He was born and raised in Houston, Texas. He graduated with top honors from Texas A&M University and in his class at Texas A&M College of Medicine. He completed his residency training at Scott and White Memorial Hospital in Temple, Texas, serving as Chief Surgical Resident.

He gained exceptional experience in laparoscopic procedures, including advanced laparoscopic hernia, gastric and colon surgeries. He has performed thousands of laparoscopic procedures. Early in his career Dr. Felts had an interest in the surgical treatment of obesity. In 2006, he transitioned his surgical practice exclusively to Bariatric Surgery. It is a move he has totally embraced and thoroughly enjoys. He established a successful bariatric practice in the Dallas area with thousands of successful Bariatric Laparoscopic Surgeries to his credit. Texas has been home for Dr. Felts but he has always had a great love for the people and spirit of New Mexico where he owns a cabin in Angel Fire. He has had a New Mexico medical license since 2006. He was instrumental in obtaining bariatric coverage for all New Mexico Medicaid patients and established the first Comprehensive Center for Bariatric surgery in Las Cruces in 2015.
