Our weight-loss surgery program offers comprehensive support services in conjunction with your bariatric surgeon’s team, which includes nutrition support services with a registered dietician, weigh-ins, and weight-loss support group meetings (see below). Most of your pre-operative education will be through your bariatric surgeon’s office.
In-hospital support includes six pre-operative consultations with a registered dietician and at least five post-op consultations that include:
- Review of current intake and prescribed diet plan to prepare for surgery
- Consultation on appropriate foods pre- and post-op
We offer a Persons of Size Support Group the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the hospital. During the meeting, there is a guest speaker, and the opportunity to share successes and challenges, build camaraderie, share healthy recipes and receive weight-loss tips.
The meetings are strictly confidential and are held in The Green Room located just off the main hospital lobby at 3828 Delmas Terrace in Culver City. Street and valet parking are available. For more information, call (310) 836-7000 ext. 3168.
