As mandated by most insurance companies, a complete nutritional and psychological evaluation is required prior to any weight loss surgery. This includes but not limited to Duodenal Switch, revision of Gastric Bypass to Duodenal Switch, Sleeve Gastrectomy, revision of Adjustable Gastric Banding or other weight loss surgical procedure, or revision of Duodenal Switch.
We work very closely with nutritionists and dietitians who have a thorough understanding of different weight loss surgical procedures and the nutritional and supplement requirements that are needed postoperatively. We also work with psychologists who have years of experience with providing the care and counseling needed during the pre-and postoperative periods.
Our office will coordinate and help you complete these evaluations.
