WeightWise emphasizes a truly multidisciplinary approach to weight loss surgery. Delivering a zero percent death rate and excellent long term outcomes results directly from our comprehensive programatic approach, not simply “good surgery.” The four components for the highest level of long-term success with weight loss are as follows:
1. Patient Education
Providing important knowledge about how bariatric surgery works and what it takes to not only lose your weight but also keep it off after surgery. We expect each patient to become involved as an integral part of the weight loss team.
2. A Thorough Medical Evaluation by the Surgeons and Other Multidisciplinary Team Members
This will allow the team to identify medical or psychological conditions that need to be optimized prior to your operation. This also ensures maximum patient safety at the time of your surgery.
3. State-of-the-Art Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery
Providing the least post-operative pain and the fastest patient recovery through state-of-the-art surgical techniques.
4. Long Term Follow Up and Support
Enabling patients to achieve their maximum long-term success.
Each one of these components is addressed by our multidisciplinary team of experts in bariatric medicine, nutrition, exercise, clinical psychology and bariatric surgery. This allows our team to reduce the risk of your surgery as much as possible and increase your chances of long term durable weight loss. This is why WeightWise has a 0% death rate since opening is door in 2006 and a complication rate well below national averages.
