BARIATRIC SURGERY

 
 

Making the decision to undergo bariatric surgery can be quite overwhelming and scary. There is a lot of information that you will need to learn, absorb, and apply prior and post-surgery. In addition, a vital component to successfully navigating this new lifestyle would be to understand your eating patterns prior to your surgery and learning how to embrace bariatric nutrition guidelines after your procedure.  There is a lot of information available on Dr Google, as well as on blogs and social media pages dedicated to bariatric surgery.  However, it is important that you receive gold standard evidence-based information that supports your lifestyle and autonomy.
