About Our Nutrition Services
At Advanced Surgeons, we understand that eating right and getting the proper nutrition are critical for success in losing weight, staying healthy after bariatric surgery and improving one’s overall health. That’s why we have a dedicated nutrition team to support our patients on their weight loss journeys, unlike many other bariatric practices.
Our dieticians—Annette Cuevas, Melissa Kessler and Janet Borra—have more than 50 years’ combined experience as registered dieticians and nutrition consultants. Amy, Melissa and Janet have years of experience working specifically with a bariatric population.
After your bariatric surgery, you need a lot of support, including relearning how to eat and making sure you get the necessary nutrients in your diet. Our nutrition services team is here for you.
Why Nutrition Services Are Important After Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric surgery, although safe, effective and easy to recover from, fundamentally changes how your entire gastrointestinal system operates. Depending on the surgery, you may be eating much less, absorbing fewer calories and nutrients or both.
Our nutrition services team makes sure you are on the right path to success. They can help you come to terms with the new portion sizes required by your surgery, and they will closely monitor your food intake to make sure you are not experiencing any nutritional deficiencies due to less absorption of calories and nutrients.
When you decide to have bariatric surgery or medical weight loss with Advanced Surgeons, you get the most comprehensive and experienced team of healthcare providers dedicated to you. Few other practices have their own nutrition team, but we feel nutrition is too important not to employ experts.
If you are considering bariatric surgery, medical weight loss or any other service at Advanced Surgeons and are looking for pioneering surgeons, experienced clinical staff and incredible post-surgical support, request an appointment with Advanced Surgeons. You’ll meet with a surgeon who will help you decide which procedure is right for you. And, we’ll be with you every step of the way, from initial consultation to recovery and beyond.
