Participate in the Bariatric Wellness Program
We are committed to providing you with the resources necessary to make this process as successful and rewarding as possible. Our program offers the tools and knowledge needed to adjust to the physical and psychological changes that occur during this transition period. The Bariatric Wellness Program is a multidisciplinary program designed to prepare you for your journey ahead. It is an essential part of the process and is required prior to undergoing any bariatric procedure.
This six hour program combines nutritional, emotional and physical lessons. Our registered dieticians will provide nutritional teaching specific to bariatric surgery. Our psychologist will provide you and your family with insights into possible emotional pitfalls that may lie ahead and provide tips on how to handle daily challenges after surgery. In addition, our exercise physiologist will show you how to become physically active in a productive, healthy and safe manner. You will also learn effective exercise routines and tips on how to stay excited and motivated without intimidation.
