What to Expect with Bariatric Surgery
Scheduling surgery and what to expect
Bariatric surgery is usually performed 12 weeks after the prospective patient attends a required information session with a bariatric surgeon. These sessions are held regularly and are designed to introduce the patient to the bariatric procedures as well as to the FirstHealth Bariatric Team.
Prospective patients are also required to be evaluated by the following:
- A registered dietitian
- A licensed clinical social worker
- A bariatric surgeon
