Studies show that long-term follow-up is essential to maintaining permanent weight loss. With the help of our bariatric team and specialized follow-up care, we provide you with the practioners, tools and support needed to maintain a successful weight loss future.
Your post-surgery follow-up will begin 3-4 weeks after surgery. Our dedicated staff will work closely with you to schedule all of your recommended post-surgical visits. These visits include continued nutrition and exercise counseling, routine visits with Dr. Emma Patterson or our physician assistants, and our Bariatric Endocrinologist, Dr. William Raum.
Attending support groups is a useful avenue to gain support and understanding from other bariatric patients. The more support you have after your bariatric surgery, the better your success will be in keeping the weight off permanently. There are many choices throughout the state of Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and/or online for your convenience.
