Surgical weight loss is usually a last resort option for those who are extremely overweight and have been unable to lose weight with other methods. Although our physicians do not perform bariatric surgery, we do offer pre-operative and post-operative nutritional support and counseling.
Our role, and it is a critical one, is to prepare you for the surgery and help you adjust to the changes afterward. We also can provide you with the surgical referral when you are ready.
The decision to pursue weight loss surgery is a very personal one. There are many factors that you must consider as you make this decision, and it is extremely important that you take the time to explore all of the pros and cons of the procedure.
Bariatric surgery is not an easy weight loss solution.
It is a life-altering procedure that requires you to dramatically alter your eating habits to prevent yourself from becoming sick and ensuring you get sufficient amounts of critical nutrients.
