Our program uses a team approach to ensure success and long-term weight control. The primary player in this team is the patient. We take a team approach before, during, and after treatment with surgery. However, no operation alone is a cure for obesity. The operation gives most patients better control of their food intake for the rest of their lives. We expect our patients to stay in touch with us and involved in the program during the 12 months after surgery and then annually. The Weight Loss Surgery Team consists of the patient, dietician, psychologist, nurse, surgeon and the patient care coordinator.
