Weight Loss Management

Weight Loss Management Care Providers

The Weight Loss Management team takes a multidisciplinary team approach to managing patient care, incorporating the knowledge and skills of on-site:
  • Surgeons
  • Nurses
  • A specialized bariatric nurse practitioner
  • Nutritionists
  • Social workers
  • Internal medicine hospitalists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Pharmacists
  • Physical therapists
  • Administrative staff
  • I​nternal Medicine Provider
​Our entire team works together to treat patients with the utmost respect and to provide them with consistent, clear communication before, during and after surgery and throughout follow-up care. The surgeon helps to direct patient care, but all team members have an important role to play to ensure the best possible outcome. 

The team meets on a bi-weekly basis to discuss patient care and to continually improve the process of weight loss surgical care, so that we continue to provide care that is the model for the region.
