NewLife – Bariatric Surgery
This program has been created to provide patients with complete weight-loss support before and after their procedure. With the help of our network of surgeons and our team psychologist and nutritionist, patients return home with all of the necessary resources and tools to begin their journey to their new life.
The surgery is usually for men who are at least 100 pounds overweight and women who are at least 80 pounds overweight. If you are somewhat less overweight, surgery still might be an option if you also have diabetes, heart disease or sleep apnea.
Weight loss surgery limits the amount of food you can take in and some operations also restrict the amount of food you can digest. Many people who have the surgery lose weight quickly, so If you follow diet and exercise recommendations, you can keep most of the weight off.
As with any serious surgery, there is a risk of complications, including infections, hernias and blood clots.
