Post-Bariatric Surgery Success Counseling

Bariatric surgery affects almost every aspect of an individual’s life.  After surgery, patients learn to change the ways they eat, exercise, and in some cases, interact socially. Our dedicated treatment team works with patients to help them develop the skills needed to adjust to life after surgery.

Working with the Bariatric Surgery Program, our nutritionists can help patients develop meal plans that follow very specific dietary guidelines required after surgery.  Our psychologists are available to counsel patients on changes in their self-image or personal relationships that may occur with weight loss.
