Work With Us to Get Ready

You’ve no doubt considered weight loss surgery for some time now. That’s understandable. It may be one of the most important decisions you ever make. While exciting to consider, it can also be a stressful process. We do everything we can to help things go smoothly.


We know that figuring out your insurance coverage for bariatric surgery isn’t easy. That’s why at Capital Health, a dedicated insurance coordinator will work with you to navigate this process, so you’ll know what to expect.

Pre-surgery visits

Our dietitians and counselors will meet with you to make sure you’re ready for surgery, and we’ll review your medical records. You may also need blood, X-ray and other tests, as well as consultations with other doctors. Many people like to join one of our support groups at this point, for encouragement and a place to talk.

A critical component of the pre-surgery stage is your ability to be compliant with our program requirements. We will spend time with you to make sure you understand the importance and the implications of following our pre-surgery process.
