Most of our weight loss surgeries are performed through several tiny incisions in the abdomen. The usual hospital stay is 1 day for the adjustable gastric banding procedure and 2-3 days with gastric bypass.
Surgery is only one part of our program. The medical care, dietary counseling and emotional support received before and after surgery are vitally important to your success. Program components include:
Medical care provided by nurses and doctors with bariatric training
Surgical suites, recovery area, and patient rooms designed for bariatric patients
Nutritional counseling with a clinical dietician
Psychological counseling and support
Administrative support for insurance issues
Individuals matter at the Weight Management Center at Palmetto Health. Our goal is to provide patients their best chance to achieve permanent weight loss by offering personalized care both before and after surgery.
