Pre-Operative Assessment and Support

Our team works closely with the Bariatric Surgery Program at the University of Pennsylvania Health System.  We are able to refer patients who have decided that surgery is the best option for them, and we work closely with those individuals pre- and postoperatively to ensure their success.

Choosing to undergo gastric bypass surgery is a big decision and one that must be carefully considered.  Our treatment team is available to fully review this option with interested patients. We provide the psychosocial evaluation that is often required for patients considering bariatric surgery.
