Obesity may have an adverse effect on health. It can lead to reduced life expectancy and other serious health conditions such as certain types of cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, acid reflux, sleep apnea and Type 2 Diabetes.
Our experienced, board-certified surgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of clinically obese patients and offer you the latest advancements in the field of bariatric care and surgical weight loss.
Your Steps - Our Support
Our program maintains a multidisciplinary team that functions collectively to maximize our patients' weight loss results. This team consists of a surgeon, registered dietitian, registered nurse, psychologist, and patient care navigator. You will be accessing a program that is tailored to your individual needs. This will include detailed nutritional information for both pre and post-operative periods. Additionally, your surgeon will refer you to a psychologist who will provide an evaluation prior to your surgery. Finally, your care will be directed by a group of professionals including a program coordinator, clinical coordinator, and experienced office staff that will work with your team to help you maximize your weight loss.
