High blood pressure, diabetes, and heart conditions are only some of the comorbidities that have been shown to result from years of unresolved weight issues. This awareness has initiated a movement in the medical world to find a solution to the growing population struggling with their weight. It is evident that there is no quick fix to chronic conditions such as this; however, research has demonstrated that surgical intervention provides the only long-term control of morbid obesity.

Our patients have access to monthly nutritional support meetings to help them manage their eating habits after the surgery. These meetings are held by out registered dietitian in a safe and friendly group setting, allowing patients to ask questions and interact with one another. Additionally we provide menu plans and recipes on our website which are packed with nutrients and easy to make!
Every other month patients also have available to them behavioral support meetings with our board certified psychiatrist. These meetings address common lifestyle and psychological matters related to weight management and weight loss surgery.
