The Journey

Pre-Surgery

Our team of weight loss surgery professionals, registered dietitians, psychologists, and surgeons will help you determine if weight loss surgery is right for you. They will determine if the benefits of surgery outweigh the risks and assess if you are medically ready to undergo the procedure. The team considers:

  • Medical conditions and history
  • Nutrition and dietary history
  • Psychological status
  • Motivation
  • Age

The first step in the pathway to bariatric surgery is to attend one of our free informational seminars. During this session, we will discuss the history and implications of obesity, the options in treatment and the risks and complications of surgery. We will introduce you to what to expect after surgery and answer any questions you may have. Once it is determined if surgery is a good fit for you then you will have a surgical consultation with one of our bariatric surgeons and begin the journey to a healthier life.

Post-Surgery

Surgery is only a part of the solution. The path towards a healthier lifestyle will have challenges. Our program is designed to provide support at every step of your journey. Studies have shown behavior modification is one of the most critical components to any weight loss strategy.
