Step 2: Consultation

The next step in the process is a consultation with the surgeon. The consultation will involve scheduling medical and psychological clearances, testing to establish baseline information, and developing the pre-surgical plan, including selecting the surgical procedure to be performed.

Step 3: Education

Education is an important part of preparing for weight loss surgery. Our educational program has three components:

  • Patient education class
  • Hospital tour with the Bariatric Program Coordinator
  • Final pre-surgery visit
