Your introductory visit to your surgeon will cover a lot of ground. It may take some time, so please prepare for this. You will meet the surgeon and dietitian and undergo a comprehensive medical assessment, covering your general health history and expectations.
The information assimilated will help the surgeon to determine whether other tests and specialist consultations are required prior to becoming a candidate for gastric bypass surgery or sleeve gastrectomy. You may progress to meet a number of healthcare professionals in advance of surgery should that prove necessary.
Please make a list of any questions you may have in advance. You may also benefit from bringing a friend or relative along with you should you wish.
Following all evaluations, if deemed suitable for gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, a pre operation plan is arranged, including both pre and post operative diet education.
