Post-Operative Care for Lasting Weight Loss and Health

Your commitment to a new lifestyle is extremely important for lasting health and weight loss.

Our team provides long-term post-operative care to help you incorporate and maintain healthy habits.

  • Dietary guidelines – Follow the post-operative dietary guidelines closely, as they are critical to your recovery and success.
  • Vitamins and minerals – It's important to get the right nutrients after weight-loss surgery. Review general tips on vitamin and mineral supplements, and how to make sure you are getting the nutrients you need.
  • Exercise – Incorporating regular physical activity into your daily routine is important, too. We recommend that you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day.
  • Support group – Our support group provides a safe environment for people who have had bariatric surgery (through our program) to share thoughts and concerns, ask questions, exchange advice and find support.
