Setting You Up for Lasting Success
Winchester Hospital’s team wants your weight loss surgery to be a positive experience that brings you long-term success. As part of our multidisciplinary approach, if you seek weight loss surgery you will receive education from your surgeon in his/her practice, a visit from a nutrition specialist in the hospital, contact information for your surgeon in case you have questions or concerns, and a follow-up phone call from Winchester Hospital or the surgeon’s office to check on your status after you leave the hospital.
To ensure you fully understand the weight loss surgery process, prior to your surgery you will be asked to watch the below video that explains what you can expect from your surgeon, nurse, nutrition specialist, pharmacist and behavioral health specialist.
