BARIATRIC SURGERY EVALUATION
HELP YOU MAKE AN INFORMATIVE & APPROPRIATE DECISION ON SURGERY
Increasingly, people are seeking bariatric surgery for the treatment of obesity.
Obesity is a complex medical issue with the potential for long term emotional and physical problems. Surgeons often require a mental health evaluation in order to proceed with bariatric surgery to assess the patient’s motivations, weight/diet history, current eating behaviors, medical and emotional history.
A critical role that the bariatric evaluation plays is to educate patients about the surgery and associated lifestyle changes, social supports, and tools to ensure long term weight loss success.
Our treatment team, led by Dr. Ram, is uniquely qualified to evaluate readiness for surgery and provide follow up care as needed to bariatric patients.
