Meet Dr. Subramanyam “Manny” Ayyar

Houston weight loss surgeon Dr. Subramanyam "Manny" AyyarAs one of the top weight loss surgery specialists in Houston and Cypress, Dr. Ayyar obtained a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Baylor University. He received his M.D. from The University of Texas Medical School, in Houston, Texas. Then Dr. Ayyar completed his five-year residency curriculum in surgery at St. Joseph Hospital, Houston, Texas, in 1999 with an emphasis in minimally invasive surgery. Aside from being a devoted physician, Dr. Ayyar is a loving husband and father of five.

Beyond the basic laparoscopic gallbladder and appendix removal, or anti-reflux operation, Dr. Ayyar also performs laparoscopic colon or rectal resections for infections and tumors, laparoscopic splenectomy, and adrenal and renal (kidney) resections. He has performed countless laparoscopic hernia operations, single incision gall bladder removal, and robotic procedures.

While enjoying all aspects of general surgery he has pioneered minimally invasive surgical procedures in the suburbs of West and Northwest Houston. This form of surgery has evolved in the last decade and is advantageous for the patient, leaving smaller scars, less postoperative pain, and fewer wound infections affording individuals a rapid recovery.

Dr. Ayyar and his partners have been successful in completing delicate operations endoscopically. Another field of his expertise is in the subspecialty of endocrine surgeries (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pancreas). Dr. Ayyar combines his passion for minimally invasive surgery and endocrine surgery by performing thyroid and parathyroid operations through approximately an inch size incision.
