The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You
Preparing for Weight Loss Surgery
Each patient works closely with our care team who will guide you through your pre-surgery requirements based on your surgeon’s recommendations and your health insurance requirements. You will complete a psychological evaluation and obtain medical clearance from your primary care doctor. Other medical tests may be needed as required by your health insurance.
Support and Learning – Keys to Success
We offer monthly support groups that can help you be successful leading up to your surgery. This is a time to ask questions that you may have and to meet and network with others that are on a similar weight loss journey. Registration is not required. You are welcome to attend before and after surgery.
Your surgery location will be determined with your surgeon and every effort will be made to select the most convenient location. Ascension Michigan Weight Loss bariatric surgeries are performed at:
- Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, Madison Heights
- Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield
- Ascension St. John Hospital
