Presurgical Counseling

Reputable bariatric surgery programs have a counseling component, because patients considering weight-loss surgery must fully understand the significant life changes that will follow. At Selim Surgery Center we offer full support and education both before and after weight loss surgery.

Presurgical counseling includes a comprehensive evaluation of a person’s physical and mental health, as well as patient’s dietary and activity habits, overall lifestyle, and post-surgical wellness goals.

Counseling is provided by a well trained experienced team that includes our surgeon and other medical staff, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and mental-health professionals.

Our experienced team assists patients to choose the best weight loss procedure that fits their needs, goals and life style.
