Dr. Malladi's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Malladi "A combination of a relentless pursuit of excellence, education and training, and keen intuition have propelled Dr. Preeti Malladi to the top of her specialty. She is a board-certified, fellowship-trained minimally-invasive bariatric and general surgeon. As a native of Richardson, Texas, Preeti Malladi, MD is excited to serve the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Her integrity and dedication to patients, paired with her surgical expertise, have earned her a solid and trusted reputation and outstanding outcomes. Her passion is to improve patients' lives through compassionate care with the highest level of clinical and technical skill and the most innovative technologies for life changing results. I care for each patient as a special individual and am excited to develop strong, long-term relationships with them, she says. A Richardson native, Dr. Malladi graduated valedictorian and national academic decathlon champion from J.J. Pearce High School. She attended Stanford University as a Presidential Scholar and completed her bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. At the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, she served as vice president of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society, president of the American Medical Women's Association, and graduated first in her class. In addition, Dr. Malladi was chosen by the UTSW faculty to receive the prestigious Ho Din award which is the foremost honor bestowed on a graduating senior who embodies the "spirit of medical wisdom and human understanding." Dr. Malladi then specialized in surgery at UCLA in a seven-year academic general surgery residency program. She completed a two-year research fellowship in the field of tissue engineering at the Pediatric Surgical Research Institute at Stanford University School of Medicine, where she studied the differentiation of adipose-derived multipotent cells into bone and cartilage to help children with congenital bone defects. This research earned her the Wilma Miley Morton award for the top chief resident in research and the McCormick award for Women in Academic Medicine. Dr.Malladi pursued further fellowship training in minimally invasive general and bariatric surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago under the mentorship of Dr. Nathaniel J. Soper, one of the pioneers of advanced laparoscopy and foregut surgery. During this time, she studied laparoscopic, single-incision, and scarless techniques for anti-reflux surgery, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, gastric banding, and other bariatric and general surgeries. Dr. Malladi's practice focuses on foregut surgery and bariatrics using minimally invasive techniques. She is highly experienced and has performed thousands of advanced surgeries. She is the Medical Director of Bariatrics at Methodist Dallas Medical Center where her leadership has helped develop one of the most outstanding Bariatric programs in DFW. She has presented nationally, conducted international teaching webinars, and has numerous publications and book chapters.
