We provide consultation and assessments to determine our patients' needs and suitability for bariatric surgery. Post-surgery, we collaborate with their medical teams to monitor nutrition changes, evaluate their post-surgery lifestyle changes, and track the adoption of long-term behavior modification.
What is Bariatric Surgery?
Bariatric surgery is a weight-loss surgery used to treat cases of severe obesity. Obesity is a serious health problem that can have consequences for other health issues, such as :
High blood pressure
Increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
These types of surgeries are done laparoscopically. A small instrument with a camera attached to the end is inserted into the abdomen via small incisions (cuts) made by the surgeon.
Your surgeon will meet with you to choose the best kind of surgery for you. It’s important that you understand both the advantages and the risks associated with bariatric surgery.
You will have been told about the different types of surgeries at the information session. However, don’t hesitate to ask any questions you still have. Your health care team will be happy to answer them.
