Once it's been determined that you are a good candidate for weight loss surgery, you'll collaborate with doctors to get ready for surgery, lifestyle changes, and a whole new, healthier life.
Bariatric surgery requires preparation in three dimensions:
Before your surgery, you'll meet with your surgeon, bariatric coordinator and nutritionist to help you better prepare for the procedure and life post-surgery. During this meeting, your surgeon will review your health history and you'll talk in-depth about surgical techniques and risk, the need for further consultations or tests. You'll also get a checklist of pre-operative requirements which must be completed prior to surgery.
After review of all your details, you'll be notified of your surgery date and whether we need anything additional.
As part of getting ready for surgery, your doctor may ask you to attend a free bariatric weight loss seminar. Find out more here.
