Your appointment begins by meeting a nurse specialist to go over your medical history. From there, you will meet with your surgeon to review your medical history, answer any questions you may have, and discuss the risks and benefits of undergoing bariatric surgery. Then, you will meet a bariatric dietitian discuss the significant dietary changes that occur after weight loss surgery.
All patients must meet with a psychologist or psychiatrist, in addition to members of the bariatric team. A few weeks before surgery, you will be required to complete a preoperative evaluation that includes a class and work-up to be coordinated with your primary care provider.
