At the Obesity Center for Surgery and Treatment, we want our patients to have as much information and support as possible. This philosophy applies to the time prior to surgery when patients are learning about their options, and it applies in the months following surgery. We offer information sessions on a regular basis for patients prior to surgery. We offer support sessions for patients following surgery. We recommend patients use everything we offer because information and support is critical to a successful weight loss journey.
