Pre- and Post-Surgical Support

What happens before and after bariatric surgery is just as important as the surgery itself. Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center and Chilton Medical Center provides comprehensive pre-surgery evaluation and preparation, plus an array of post-surgical medical and emotional support. We’re with patients every step of the way, helping them make a lifelong commitment to healthy habits and maximum weight loss.

Pre-Bariatric Preparatory Program

Before undergoing bariatric surgery at Atlantic Health Weight & Wellness Center, patients must try to lose weight through medical and nutritional techniques. If these therapies fail to achieve adequate results, our surgeons will evaluate whether he or she is a good candidate for surgical weight loss procedures. We offer several programs to help patients meet preoperative weight control requirements established by their individual insurance provider:

  • Three-to-six-month medically monitored preoperative weight loss program
  • Three-to-six month nutrition counseling program
  • Nutrition evaluation and postoperative diet education
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Exercise recommendations

Post-Bariatric Surgery Program

After your surgery, our medical team will continue to work closely with you to monitor progress in a number of different areas: 

  • Corrected vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Decreased triglycerides
  • Improved body image
  • Improved metabolism
  • Improved quality of life
  • Increased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (good cholesterol)
  • Increased mobility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower body mass index (BMI)
  • Reduced blood sugar levels
  • Reduced elevated levels of total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol

Our post-surgery program may include:

  • Individualized counseling
    • Nutrition
    • Psychological
  • Metabolic monitoring
    • Medication management
    • Monitoring of vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Support groups and classes

In addition, Morristown, Overlook, Newton and Chilton medical centers offer support groups and classes.

We also encourage bariatric surgery patients to follow up with a metabolic physician who may adjust medications, evaluate protein requirements, assess fluid losses and electrolyte changes, determine the need for vitamin and mineral supplementation, and monitor malabsorption and reduced capacity to hold food.
