PRE – OPERATIVE PATIENT'S ASESSMENT
If you are planning to undergo bariatric surgery, you can expect a thorough pre-operative assessment to be conducted by our team. This assessment will begin with a Body Composition Analysis, which will give us a snapshot of your health by differentiating between fat, protein, minerals, and body water. This information is important to help you achieve your health goals from the inside out.
Next, we will take your overall clinical history, including your current and previous medical history, ongoing medications, family history, current complaints, and issues, allergies, and sleeping pattern. We will also gather your nutritional history, including your dietary pattern, junk food consumption, binge eating habits, caffeine consumption, sleeping habits, and 24-hour dietary recall.
Once we have all of this information, we will educate you about the surgery, including the mechanism of the bariatric surgery, its benefits, drawbacks, and myths. We want you to be fully informed and educated about the surgery before making a decision.
Finally, we will plan a date for your surgery based on your individual needs and circumstances. Our goal is to make sure that you are fully prepared and informed before undergoing the procedure, ensuring the best possible outcome for your long-term health and well-being.
POST – OPERATIVE PATIENT ASSESMENT
After your bariatric surgery, we will guide you through a detailed post-operative program to ensure optimal recovery and long-term success. During your post-surgery walk-through, we will counsel you on your diet progression from liquid to solid food phase . This phased approach will allow your body to adjust and adapt to the changes and ensure that you are getting the necessary nutrients while recovering.
We will also explain your physical activity routine, which is an essential part of the recovery process. We will guide you through the appropriate level of physical activity for each phase of your recovery, helping you build strength and endurance while avoiding any potential complications.
To ensure that your body is getting the necessary nutrients, we will recommend multivitamins and supplements that you should take post-surgery. We will explain the importance of each supplement and how they will help support your overall health and well-being.
Finally, we will discuss the frequency of follow-up visits to ensure that we can monitor your progress, address any concerns or issues, and help you stay on track towards your long-term health goals.
Regular monitoring of your lab results is an important part of maintaining your overall health and well-being. By checking your multi-vitamins and minerals levels and other key parameters on a quarterly basis, we can ensure that your body is functioning properly and identify any potential issues before they become more serious. This allows us to provide personalized guidance to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Our team of experts are committed to providing you with the support and guidance you need to achieve lasting success after your bariatric surgery.
Support Group Program:
We understand that bariatric surgery is a significant step towards achieving weight loss goals. However, the journey doesn't end there.
At AB Plus Hospital, we take pride in our successful support group programs, which have been running for almost two decades. We understand that undergoing medical treatment can be a daunting experience, and having a support system in place is crucial for a patient's overall well-being. That's why we organize a monthly support group program for our patients.
Through our support group program, patients can connect with our team of experts and other patients who have undergone the same surgery. It serves as a platform for them to share their experiences, offer support and advice, and learn from one another.
We organize various activities such as seminars and group discussions to help our patients sustain their weight loss journey post-surgery. Our experts share tips on healthy eating habits, exercise routines, and mental well-being. Patients can also ask questions, clear doubts, and get personalized advice from our team.
The support group program is an excellent way for our patients to stay connected with us and each other, even after their surgery. We believe that having a strong support system is vital for achieving long-term success, and our support group program is a testament to that belief.
