Medical Weight Loss &

Bariatric Surgery

Learn More

In their clinical practice guidelines for the perioperative nutritional, metabolic, and nonsurgical support of the bariatric surgery patient, The Obesity Society (TOS), the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) acknowledge that bariatric surgery remains a safe and effective intervention for select patients with obesity; however, they also stress that a team approach to perioperative care is mandatory with special attention to nutritional and metabolic issues.

THE BENEFITS

Incorporating preoperative weight loss into your bariatric treatment plan provides numerous benefits to the patient and to the surgeon:

  • 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 to outline your staff’s role in the process.
