Our care doesn’t end when you leave the operating room. We’re there through recovery and beyond to help you make the most of your new life. Many aspects of your health will improve after surgery, but it doesn’t happen without commitment. It is important to be committed to following a new and improved post-operative lifestyle, including being proactive in dealing with potential risks and discomforts associated with surgery.
Exercise is key to maintaining a healthy body weight after surgery. Each bariatric surgery patient will receive a complimentary one-year membership to the Merit Health Wellness Center to make sure they begin their recovery on the right foot. Click here for more information.
Weight loss surgery is only the first step. Lifestyle changes are the next step and will be crucial to achieving your weight loss goals. To help you accomplish these goals, we offer free, monthly support groups. If you are thinking about having weight loss surgery and want to talk directly with other people that have already undergone bariatric surgery, please visit/attend the class and support group. This is a great way to meet other people and learn about their experiences firsthand. Click here for more information.
