Adult Bariatric Surgery Clinic

Provides surgical treatment options for adults with obesity.

This clinic provides assessment and support for patients undergoing bariatric surgery.The initial clinic assessment determines the patient’s specific barriers to managing their weight. The next steps involve developing an individualized care plan with the patient which may include:

  • behaviour modification
  • counseling for nutrition, physical activity, and mental health
  • bariatric surgery
  • coordinating care and transitioning the patient back to their family physician with recommendations from the clinic

Please note, it takes several appointments and considerable time to determine eligibility for bariatric surgery
