For some people who have struggled with sustainable weight loss, bariatric surgery at UPMC may be the answer.
A comprehensive screening process is in place to ensure patients are physically and emotionally prepared for the procedure and the lifestyle changes that accompany it.
It is important to note that many insurance companies require a 3-6 month physician monitored diet prior to approving bariatric surgery. Patients approved for bariatric surgery may choose to take advantage of the Medical Management Weight Loss Programs to lose weight during their 6-month physician monitored diet period. Weight loss prior to surgery may lessen complications and recovery time.
