The Bariatric Surgery Program at Reliant Medical Group offers several options for follow up and support after bariatric surgery.
Why is support after surgery so important? Bariatric surgery is a weight loss tool but it is important to continue to work on behavioral, nutrition and exercise goals to achieve and maintain weight loss and stay healthy. Research shows that people who have had consistent support and follow up after bariatric surgery are the most successful long term. Below are options we provide for follow up and support after bariatric surgery.
