Surgery is a tool and must be coupled with ongoing lifestyle changes to support immediate and lifelong success and sustain a medically healthy weight. The GSBWC in-house nutritional program provides the counsel, support and expertise needed for pre and post-surgery support. Most insurance companies require nutritional counseling as part of the medical approval for surgery. GSBWC has excellent nutritionists trained in bariatric nutritional counseling and ongoing support. Our nutritionists provide education and support every step of the way.
