Central Maine Bariatric Surgery offers you the opportunity to participate in numerous meetings and support groups before and after surgery to help contribute to your successful outcome. Patient groups are particularly helpful as they can share their experiences and provide the encouragement and reinforcement you need to succeed in changing your lifestyle behaviors.
Central Maine Bariatric Surgery provides patients with ongoing support before, during, and after surgery. This includes pre-operative nutrition and behavioral health counseling and post-operative support with our physician assistant and dieticians. Patients are seen in the clinic at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and annually thereafter. We highly encourage and desire patients to continue with life-long bariatric follow-up and support.
