Attend a Bariatric Surgery Information Session
Follow-up is an important part of the bariatric surgery process. After surgery in Mankato, Minnesota, you'll meet with a registered dietitian who will help you maintain a healthy diet and ensure you're getting the proper amounts of protein and vitamins. You'll see the dietitian at three weeks, three months, six months, nine months, one year, 18 months, two years and then annually.
You'll follow up with your surgeon or another clinician on our Bariatric Surgery team several times in the year after surgery with indefinite annual visits. You also can call the bariatric coordinator at any time between visits if you have any questions or concerns.
Support group meetings can help you achieve long-term success. Meetings are held twice a month and include talks from multidisciplinary team members, such as dietitians, exercise physiologists and Psychiatry & Psychology professionals.
