I don't even know where to start. I was a tough case with many possible complications. Dr. Kukreja took my case and through skill and sheer determination, successfully did my gastric bypass. I'm about 3 weeks post surgery, and I feel great and have lost 35 pounds. I've stopped taking my blood pressure meds, and my type 2 diabetes is nearly gone. I'm grateful to Dr. Kukreja for starting me on the road to a new me , and would recommend him to anyone who needs weight loss surgery.

My doctor referred me to Dr. Kukreja for my surgery in order that I could have the "best outcome". I am thankful he did! Dr. Kukreja is professional and personable and his staff worked very hard to always follow up when I called. I was very impressed with the robotic surgery experience.

I had been dealing with severe stomach pain since November 2019. I saw so many doctors I can't count. It took one doctor Dr. Kukreja to say..." I don't know what I will find if anything, but it's worth a look". He found and corrected the problem, I'm so grateful that I was treated as a VALUED PATIENT then a chart number. I'm beyond satisfied with the service I received. Thank you

I sustained a Inguinal hernia while working out. While this is a common surgery for men who are active, I did not want a common surgeon to treat my case. After a thorough search of surgeons in DFW (who are all very capable and wonderfully, talented surgeons); Dr. Kukreja just simply tops that list. My recovery was very important to me. Not just healing, but how fast I can get back to my regular activity was a big factor for me. Dr. Kukreja has the ability to perform this surgery faster than traditionally open surgery with the help of his Davinci Xi robot. This allows Dr. Kukreja to operate on me with more precision and speed than traditional methods, all without compromising clinical outcome. The result is a faster healing process with much less invasive scaring or pain. My experience was exactly as he said it would be. Fast, Easy & Virtually Painless. Today marks 10 days since my surgery and I’m back on my routine working on my mobility. Dr. Kukreja is amazing!!

This Doctor all but saved my life. How do you repay someone that did this for you? I am a leading fundraiser for Shriners Hospitals for Children, Scottish Rite Hospitals for Children, and The Grotto, a foundation that takes care of oral/dental needs for Children with Special Needs. All of these organizations rescue children regardless of the families ability to pay. Being a veteran, I have gotten to know Dr Kukreja at the VA in Dallas some years ago. It was Divine Intervention just as it was with my family when The Scottish Rite came to our rescue. This gentleman did for me what the above organizations do for Children. What a God Send. How do you repay people who have such a profound effect on your own life? Thanking them falls short. You can only try and serve them. I will continue to let people know what he did for me. Thank you Doc.

I had gastric sleeve with Dr. Kukreja and have not had any problems. I was up and able to take care of myself within a few days. I was not that sore after the surgery other than the gas minimum gas pain. I would recommend to everyone for surgery.

I had concerns regarding weight 27 months after a gastric bypass procedure. Dr. Kukreja reviewed my concerns and was patient and understanding yet candid while addressing my concerns. He explained that my concern was normal. Although I had gain some weight, it was to be expected, however, not enough to be concerned. His assessment, calm demeanor, encouragement and guidance allowed me to reassess my concerns and activate a new basic plan to accomplish the goal which I have set for myself. I’m am grateful for being a patient of Dr. Kukreja as well as the patient care provided by his staff.

Dr. Kukreja is very knowledgeable, personable, caring. He explained everything in terms I could understand, and even made sure my family was comfortable with the decisions. His staff is great as well. Every time I called I was able to get answers immediately. Surgery was a breeze with him and his team! Would recommend him a hundred times over!

Hes a real mess the worst of the worst in my opinion. He should not even be allowed to practice medicine, patient care is not his priority, getting your money is PERIOD, a rating of 1 is being kind. I would give him a - 150 if I could. If the POPE himself was standing in front of me and said SON would you recommend this guy I would say POPE run for you life. I am a veteran at the VA , when i begged for help to go on the outside the VA it was you can not go outside because we do the surgery here, another LIE is you have to move 40 miles away - another was you have to use CBOC clinic. Excuse after Excuse, After Excuse to do absolutely nothing, When I saw him my weight was 215 now my weight has been over 250 Using this guy will be the worst decision you EVER made that I GUARANTEE it may even cost you you life. There are rumors among other Veterans everyone talks WHY HE NO LONGER WORKS AT THE DALLAS VA. My opinion is he was a real snake in the grass. Ask Him Demand Answers

Dr Kukreja has been very helpful and honest with me from the beginning. We were not sure if having the gastric bypass to correct the sleeve would even work, but I can now keep some foods down whereas before I couldn't. I also had a pick line in my arm and I no longer have it nor do I take TPN for the nutrition. The surgery has been a major part of my life, and I thank Dr Kukreja for helping me.
