The Bariatric Weight Loss Program
Treatment begins with a thorough physical examination that includes electrocardiogram and blood analysis. Then, you and your physician and nurse team map a program based on your current physical condition. Because physicians manage your program, they can prescribe from a variety of medications to make your weight loss easier to achieve.
Another vital component of your weight loss program is comprehensive education in nutritionally balanced eating. The eating plan recommended will include foods to be enjoyed by the entire family, so there are no separate meals to prepare.
Once treatment is underway, you will have regular progress appointments every four weeks by your physician, as well as the advice and support of our nursing staff as frequently as you wish. The length of treatment depends on your goals and commitments.
