Bariatric Surgery Counselling And Preparation

Started on August 13, 2022

Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment we have for weight loss in patients with obesity. It is a true hormonal surgery that can lead to significant and sustainable weight loss over time. If you are eligible for weight loss surgery, this option or the option to learn more about bariatric surgery will be offered.

Weight loss surgery is not the “easy way out” option—it requires a life-long commitment to nutrition and exercise behaviours after surgery to keep our weight lost off. Practicing these behaviours before weight loss surgery, is the most important thing we can do to ensure our success after weight loss surgery. If weight loss surgery is something you have been considering, we will review what makes people good candidates for this treatment, the overall process of getting surgery, and help you prepare for this path forward.

Our clinic works in collaboration with the provincial bariatric program. After successful completion of bariatric surgery preparation through our clinic, referrals are expedited to our provincial program for bariatric surgery.

Have you had bariatric surgery abroad? Getting weight loss surgery outside of Canada can often mean there is a lack of post-bariatric care when we return. Often, this can lead to weight-regain months or years later. Our clinic works collaboratively with you to re-start post-surgical care and treat weight re-gain as early as possible.
