Preparing for Surgery
As part of the routine evaluation for weight loss surgery, you will be required to consult with a dietitian, a psychologist, and participate in a structured exercise program. Upon request, we can refer you to an exercise physiologist who is familiar with our bariatric program. These requirements help establish a clear understanding of the post-operative changes in behavior that are essential for long-term success. Additionally, Dr. Scott will personally evaluate your overall health to assure that you are ready for surgery and may order additional testing.
