Our customized approach to each patient’s plan and private consultations
are the cornerstone of your care at The Metabolic and Bariatric Center
at Saint Michael's Medical Center. Every patient begins their weight
loss journey by talking with each member of our experienced team. A one-on-one
meeting is an ideal way to learn more about medically supervised or surgical
weight loss and discover which is appropriate for you.
To ensure safety and appropriateness for surgery, patients who choose the
path of surgery will need to undergo:
- An extensive medical and psychological evaluation
- An in-depth sleep study
- Pre-operative laboratory and diagnostic testing
- Cardiovascular, pulmonary and endocrine evaluations
Better Outcomes, Healthier You
