Life After Weight-Loss Surgery

We understand the support you need at every step as you change your story.

Weight-loss surgery is a tool on the path to change your story, but we know our patients can be successful in reaching and maintaining their ideal, healthy weight.

Your commitment to losing weight and maintaining your weight loss is a crucial element of success. But we know it’s not always easy to change your eating habits and behaviors, learn new patterns, and stay strong after surgery.

After your surgery, you’ll meet with our staff nutritionist. You’ll go home with a personalized program for your diet, medical monitoring, medication changes, and more. You’ll need to follow new recommendations for medications, such as those used to treat diabetes or high blood pressure. You’ll also need to closely monitor all chronic conditions and work with your primary care physicians and other specialists.

We know your journey to an ideal, healthy weight isn’t always easy. We’re here to help you cope with and commit to the change in lifestyle the surgery brings.
