JFK Medical Center – Bariatric Surgery Program Requirements


– We try to make it as
simple and easy as possible for you to get through our program. So, what’s required after
you leave here today and you’re interested in our program. You’re going to call Nancy or Iris and schedule an appointment
for a consultation. During that consultation, you’re going to see one of the nurses whose going to take an
intake history on you. What medications you’re taking and then you’re gonna meet
with Dr. Larson Simon or Dr. Kaza to discuss which
procedure you’re interested in and what’s gonna work best for you. After that point, if you decide you want to go on further. We will then schedule
you right then and there for your Psychological interview that I talked about
earlier with Dr. Moorehead and your Nutrition
Evaluation with Valerie. After you come in for those, we will then follow up
with a Medical Clearance by your primary care MD. Some laboratory testing just
to get your baseline ranges. In addition to a Pre-Operative Class, that’s about two hours. It’s run by the nurses. You come in and we teach you
everything you need to know. How to take care of
yourself after surgery, what to expect during the surgery, after the surgery and so forth. And we also will collect a
program fee at that point.
