Consult with a Surgeon
After you have completed a seminar, you will consult with a surgeon to discuss your candidacy for surgery, treatment options and your individual requirements. The initial surgeon office visit will follow the information seminar and includes but not limited to the following:
- A nursing assessment to include but not limited to: height, weight and BMI, medical history and medication inventory, co-morbidities identified and dietary history.
- The surgeon’s assessment to include, but not limited to, physical and medical review and evaluate candidacy for surgery, discussion of surgical options and alternatives to bariatric surgery, discussion of risks and benefits, potential complications, expected outcomes, and additional medical clearance based on clinical findings
