WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY – PATIENT JOURNEY
We understand that choosing weight loss surgery as a medical intervention is a huge life decision to make.
We believe being clear and transparent about our process and fees, allows you to make an informed decision about whether weight loss surgery is right for you.
Below you will find the stages of the patient journey we have created at Surgical WeightMatters.
TRIAGE & ASSESSMENT
Book a call to speak with our friendly Patient Concierge Team. They will listen carefully to your personal story with weight and health, and explain how our different services can support you.
METABOLIC ASSESSMENT WITH YOUR BARIATRIC SURGEON
Your bariatric surgeon will assess your metabolic health, and ask questions to understand your weight and health history, your goals and current life structure. Based on the information gathered, your surgeon will explain the best weight loss options available to you, and the pros and cons of each. You can then make an informed decision whether non-surgical weight loss treatments, weight loss medication or targeted bariatric surgery is the right option for you.
PRE-OPERATIVE ASSESSMENT & SUPPORT
If you decide bariatric surgery is the best option for you, the next step is to meet with your specialist bariatric dietitian and psychotherapist. They will assess your readiness for surgery, and suggest additional support when required to fully prepare you for the positive life changes that lie ahead.
CLINICAL EXCELLENCE & OUTSTANDING HOSPITAL CARE
Your surgeon, dietitian and psychotherapist will work together throughout as a dedicated bariatric MDT (multi-disciplinary team) to support you every step of the way, supporting you to achieve the best outcomes from your surgery. The hospital team will provide you with 5-star service and care, and will work seamlessly with your surgeon.
MOTIVATIONAL AFTERCARE & COACHING
Motivational support after your surgery is essential. In the first weeks your dietitian will monitor your food intake, and your surgeon will assess your recovery. Your psychotherapist will provide invaluable support as you start navigating social eating, rapid weight loss and your changing body image and self-identity. You will receive educational and motivational emails, and can access monthly group support meetings online.
Milly Diment, Patient Concierge Manager, welcomes you to Surgical WeightMatters to support and guide you on your bespoke weight loss treatment with us.
