Pathway To Surgery
Once you decide to become a patient, you will have a consultation with our Surgeon Dr Ravi Rao, during which he will evaluate your candidacy for surgical weight loss, and determine which approach is most appropriate for you. You will also receive additional educational information about the surgery or tailored weight loss program. At this point you can discuss any information and ask any questions that have not yet been addressed. You will then go through an informed consent process.
Once the bariatric surgery consultation is complete, a medical examination process will follow. This will include a number of pre-operative tests.
After surgery, you will be educated on good nutritional choices, the benefits of an exercise plan, and supplementation. Unlike traditional weight loss programs that attempt to take a one-size-fits-all approach, we design each plan around the lifestyle and needs of each patient. Because the health and success of our patients is our highest priority, we are committed to being with you every step of the way, providing support and information to ensure that your experience is a positive one.
