Dietitians are habitsexperts in nutrition. When a patient makes a decision to undergo bariatric or obesity surgery, dietitians are required pre-operatively to assess your dietary and eating habits. These assessments help your surgeon to decide if you are ready for the surgery.

The assessments involve:

  • Tracking the change in your eating habits
  • Assessing your efforts to change your eating habits and live a healthy lifestyle over time.
  • Collecting information regarding your dietary habits which may cause problems post surgically
