In a short period of time Dr. Mantas has developed a reputation as an expert in the DFW area in the management of complex gastrointestinal disorders. Regional gastroenterologists refer to him for his expertise and skill set in the latest, most advanced, minimally invasive endoscopic techniques. With his renowned skill set Dr. Mantas is able to serve all your gastrointestinal needs. Below are a list of the procedures Dr. Mantas performs and the therapies that he utilizes in fixing your gastrointestinal problems. Please visit with Dr. Mantas to discuss the procedures and therapies in detail.

Depending on the case and patient procedures are performed in either an out-patient endoscopy center or an in-patient hospital GI department. All of facilities are state of the art and convenient to all those living in the DFW area. Safety, comfort, convenience and efficiency are paramount. Dr. Mantas respects your time and busy schedule and strives to keep your total appointment time to less than 2 hours.

To improve our procedures Dr. Mantas retrospectively and methodically analyzes all aspects of his procedures in order to make his next ones even better. He monitors established physician quality indications such as withdrawal times, complications rates and polyp detection rates. His goal is not the mean or national standard but excellence.

It is important to understand that some physicians including surgeons, internists and family doctors have decided to add endoscopy to their practices. However, they lack the expertise and dedicated training to provide exceptional care. Dr. Mantas is one of the few expertly trained doctors who can provide such service.

Dr. Mantas is currently involved in a multicenter study evaluating the effectiveness of the EndoBarrier – a liner that is endoscopically placed in the intestine creating a barrier between food and the intestinal wall. This study is designed to assess its effectiveness in reducing blood sugar in diabetics and weight loss. To learn more, please visit:
