Everything You Need to Know to be Ready for Bariatric Surgery

Congratulations on making the life-changing decision to have bariatric surgery!  We are honored to be a part of your journey and will be here to support you both before and after surgery.  Our dietitians specialize in bariatric nutrition and are ready to help you be successful.

We know you are excited to get started on preparing for your surgery.  So, register as soon as possible for our nutrition program at this link. After you register, you will get an email confirmation and then we will reach out to you within 48 hours to schedule your first appointment.  To ensure your surgery is not delayed, please do this step as soon as you get home today.

While you are waiting to get started, here are a few important things to know:

  • Once you log into the program, you will see a section called Before You Get Started and Month 1.  Please complete those sections before attending your first session with the dietitian.  These sections will answer some questions you may have about the surgery and will get you ready for the appointment.  Jot down any questions you have for us, so we can spend our time together addressing your concerns. If you have not completed Month 1, you will not be able to keep your 1st session, which may delay your surgery.
  • Your insurance requires that your sessions are approximately 30-days apart.  If you miss a session, please be aware your surgery may be delayed or you may have to start the program over again.
  • The nutrition program costs $497.  Your dietitian will tell you your portion and the remainder will be billed to your insurance company.  This amount is due at the time of registration.
  • We do not offer payment plans; therefore, all payments are due at the time of each visit. 

Again, we are so honored and excited to be a part of your journey.  We look forward to meeting you soon.
