To get in contact with your personal care manager today, call 888.575.4526 or fill out a quick form.
Once you’ve inquired about weight loss surgery, you can expect the following:
- You’ll meet your Patient Care Manager over the phone within 1 business day of inquiring.
- Within two weeks of your first inquiry, you’ll meet your bariatric surgeon in-person at the initial consult.
- If you decide to move on with weight loss surgery, you’ll undergo an examination of your esophagus, stomach and intestine to clear you for your procedure.
- After this examination, your Patient Care Manager will help you schedule your final weight loss procedure and follow-up throughout the recovery process.
Recovery depends on the weight loss procedure you chose. Below is a brief list of typical patient recovery timelines.
- Gastric Sleeve – patient often returns to work within 3 days of the procedure
- Gastric Bypass – patient often returns to work within 2 weeks of the procedure
- Gastric Balloon – this is a non-surgical procedure with little to no recovery time
