Using a Medically-Supervised Diet in Conjunction with Bariatric Surgery

Incorporating preoperative weight loss into your surgical plan can:
  • Reduce the size of the liver and increase likelihood of candidacy for bariatric surgery
  • Improve operability in patients
  • Increase postoperative weight loss at one year
  • Increase postoperative weight loss for the long-term
  • Reduce surgical complications
  • Decrease operative time and facilitate the procedure
Robard’s PeriOptimization Protocol for Bariatric Surgery is based on the ASMBS established guidelines for medical evaluations and clearances and includes a defined patient education curriculum, as well as nutrition and exercise recommendations.
