MyWeightLossHealth – Surgical Weight Loss

Weight loss surgery is an effective treatment and perhaps the right answer for you. If you qualify for weight loss surgery, our team develops a personalized weight loss strategy designed to meet your unique needs. We have created a smooth pathway with the MyWeightLossHealth – Surgical Weight Loss bundle. From preoperative education to postoperative support, the experience is streamlined with the help of a personal patient navigator, and healthcare costs are transparent and predictable.

What’s Included

The MyWeightLossHealth – Surgical Weight Loss bundle provides coordinated, proactive care from your initial consultation through the weight-loss procedure and post-surgery follow up. This bundle includes coverage of two surgical procedures: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (“Gastric Sleeve”) and Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (“Gastric Bypass”).

Specific benefits include:

  • Concierge support from a dedicated patient navigator
  • Bariatric office visits pre- and post-surgery
  • If necessary, a pre-surgery clearance visit for each of the services listed: cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, pulmonary, endocrinology and hematology
  • Dietitian and psychology visits
  • Necessary diagnostic imaging such as an EGD (endoscopy of upper GI tract)
  • All activities related to the chosen procedure (whether Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass) and hospital stay
  • Post-surgery emergency visits, observation stays, and related hospital admissions or procedures for 90 days
  • Labs, including vitamins, monitored for entire year post-surgery
  • Access to a support group

How It Works

  • You schedule a call with our patient navigator, who confirms administrative eligibility, explains the process and collects required information.

  • The patient navigator schedules your initial consult with a surgeon to determine if you are medically eligible for surgery.

  • If you are a candidate for surgery, you will officially begin your journey to surgical weight loss. If you are not a candidate for surgery, you will be offered other weight loss treatment options outside of the MyWeightLossHealth  Surgical Weight Loss bundle.  

  • Pre-surgery education on topics ranging from nutrition to emotional wellbeing will be available to help you prepare for the procedure. You will also be connected to a social support group made up of other current and past patients.

  • Typical hospital stay is 1-2 days for both surgical procedures.

  • Your care team will arrange your post-surgery check-ins to ensure that you are on the road to recovery. We will stay by your side for a full year to create long-term success.

Things to Consider

  • Being medically eligible for surgical weight loss is just the beginning of your journey. Before your surgery date is scheduled, you must demonstrate a willingness to make changes in lifestyle, dietary habits, and exercise. But don’t stress: Your care team is with you every step of the way.
  • You should be aware:
    • Smoking cessation. Nicotine use is directly related to poor surgical outcomes. You will not be scheduled for surgery until you have been nicotine free for at least 90 days with intent to stay nicotine free.
    • Alcohol consumption. In addition to being a source of extra calories, alcohol can have greater negative impacts on your health after surgery. We recommend avoiding alcohol to maximize the benefits of your operation.
