The decision to undergo bariatric surgery should not be made without a thorough understanding of the disease of morbid obesity, the surgical options, and the risks and benefits of each option. At the Surgical Clinic of Louisiana Bariatric Surgery Center, we are committed to helping you achieve success in your weight loss journey, and that journey begins with education. Thorough knowledge of the diet and lifestyle changes is in many ways more important than the weight loss surgical procedure itself. Our bariatric nurse coordinators are specially trained to guide you through the learning path and keep you on track after your weight loss surgery. Our computerized patient education tools and bariatric nutritionist are additional resources for your success.
