WEIGHT LOSS PROCEDURE OPTIONS

Check our after care support programs

  • Patient Support Group The support group is led by our bariatric surgeonsIt is a great opportunity to meet patients that already have had the operation and hear about their struggles, triumphs and efforts to change. Family and friends are encouraged to attend because they are the patient’s best support. A positive supportive environment can be an important adjunct for many during the weight loss period. There are many changes that are occurring fast, as well as adjustment or emotional issues that may arise. Often a person who is going through something similar to what you are may be the best person to understand and help. Many of the adjustment and emotional issues are discussed in a very positive and motivating environment. Many make friends or telephone buddies. The support groups are yet another way to motivate our patients and help to further their success with their weight loss and health goals.

  • Nutrition/Behavior Modification Class The nutrition-behaviour modification class is led by our dietician The major goal of the class is to help patients identify and then start changing their eating behaviours and life style. The class is yet another opportunity to learn more about ourselves and our relationship with food. Patients have a strong input on the agenda of the class. The dietician along with a psychologist help patients learn about nutrition, how to cope with the psychological stress during this time and assist patients in modifying their eating behaviours and life style to further their weight loss and health success goals. Awareness of our eating habits and behaviours is a very important element in succeeding with weight loss. It is often the first step necessary to succeed with any long term or permanent change.

  • The "Rules" Class  The rules class is led by our bariatric surgeons The Rules are the key to each patient’s success. If you have little time this will be the most important class to attend. We recommend about five of these classes during the first year after surgery. Half of your success will depend upon how well educated you are about your 'tool'. The rules will teach you how to use your tool. The rules control your tool. Hunger and portion control is achievable when the rules are followed correctly. The class is essential to learn how to use the weight loss operation correctly. The rules will turn the operation "ON". When you do not follow the rules you are turning your operation "OFF".
    Class Schedule Join us on the following dates The Rules Class meets every Friday at 1:00pm and lasts about an hour.
