Even though weight loss surgery has a dramatic effect on your ability to shed pounds, the truth is that on its own and without other supports, it is unlikely to succeed over the long run. That’s because obesity is a complex, multi-faceted medical condition and success at weight loss requires addressing all aspects that have contributed to your weight gain.
Here at White Plains Hospital, we have a bariatric coordinator whose responsibility it is to provide assistance and support through every step of your journey, including answering questions and helping to coordinate your pre- and post-operative appointments. Our medical team consists of your surgeon and the other doctors and nurses who work together to ensure that you are safe and healthy throughout your treatment, including in the weeks, months and even years afterward. Our program also includes a nutritionist, psychologist, social workers and physical therapists who will help you get and stay healthy.
