The team of surgeons who perform weight loss procedures at Woman's are some of the most experienced physicians in the region.
With the guidance of trained nutrition professionals, you’ll understand how to prepare for surgery and how to change your nutritional lifestyle afterward.
Our registered dietitians will meet with you one-on-one before your surgery and provide in-depth information so you feel confident with the changes you'll need to make when you go home.
After surgery, individual nutrition counseling is available (for an additional fee) to help keep you on track. We offer check-in appointments at three, six, nine and 12 months to track your progress and answer your questions.
Completing the team are the Exercise Physiologists at Woman's Center for Wellness. Whether you require a physical activity program before surgery or only after the procedure, you can rely upon these exercise specialists to help you achieve and maintain healthy, active lifestyles.
Our Medical Exercise Program is specially designed to help transition weight loss surgery patients from a point of little or no activity to an independent workout routine designed for their specific goals.
Your program will be created according to your needs and is available for an additional fee. You'll feel at ease and comfortable at Woman's Center for Wellness.
