How do I choose a bariatric surgeon?

A key aspect of planning for surgery is choosing the right bariatric surgeon and clinic/hospital. Your bariatric team is an important part of your weight loss journey. Consider the following while choosing a bariatric surgeon:1

  • Talk to the surgeon to know about their experience in performing the different types of surgeries and their results
  • Talk to the previous patients of the surgeon to know their experience.
  • Talk to your surgeon about how the follow-up visits are scheduled
  • Talk to the staff at the surgeon’s clinic as they will be a part of your healthcare team.
