I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions
– Stephen Covey
We believe in giving our bariatric surgery patients the education and support to empower them to make positive decisions in their daily lives. We offer an interdisciplinary approach for pre and post-op weight loss surgery educational needs and support.
We offer an ongoing series of weight loss surgery Support Group meetings headed by a PhD psychologist who has an extensive background in bariatric surgery programs. Our hope is that all bariatric patients, whether from our program or any other program, will have the support they need in developing their understanding and knowledge of how to maintain their new lifestyle.
If you chose the gastric bypass surgery, gastric sleeve surgery or LAP-Band surgery, we offer our surgical weight loss patients extended support through the Memorial Wellness Center headed by Paul Magarelli, MD, PhD, FACOG. The Wellness program is a physician and insurance based multi-discipline management and education treatment plan. The program focus is on insulin dysfunction, food enhancement, Thermogenics, integrative medicine, hormonal balance, and intensive education to provide patients with a lifelong understanding of the tools they can develop and use to combat traditionally “inevitableâ€ diseases of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, weight issues, poor libido, dementia, obesity and depression.
In the near future we will offer a video suite with educational tips from Dr. Felts to assist bariatric patients in their journey.
