Pre & Post Bariatric Surgery
What is bariatric surgery?
Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) is a surgery to help patients that struggle with excess weight. It involves making surgical changes to the digestive system in order to assist patients with weight loss.
What to do- Pre bariatric surgery
During a medical visit with our healthcare provider we can discuss what is needed in preparation for bariatric surgery. We can help to facilitate appropriate referrals to a bariatric center of your choice and walk you through the process. We can also complete the required monthly visits (required by most health insurance plans) and order necessary tests. Let us embark on this health journey with you.
What to do- Post bariatric surgery
Once the surgery is completed and you have recovered, we can help to keep you on the right track. We can also ensure that you completed all the necessary post-surgery screening labs at the indicated/ required intervals (usually at least once a year). We will talk about ways of keeping you healthy and on the right path.
