Weight loss surgery is a major surgery and as with all major surgeries, there are risks involved. This is why you should make the decision to have weight loss surgery only after careful consideration and consultation with an experienced bariatric surgeon. At Parkview, a qualified surgeon will answer your questions clearly and explain the details of the procedure, the extent of the recovery period, and the follow-up care that will be required.
Patients are required to demonstrate unsuccessful weight loss attempts and the surgical candidate’s commitment to the program is important. Post-operative appointments, support group meetings, and dietary supplements are some of aftercare components that are vital to successful weight loss. Our surgical candidates understand that successful maintenance of weight loss is a lifestyle change, and the surgery is an essential tool for this change. Our staff is available to help support our patients in achieving their goals and lifestyle changes.
