Comprehensive Follow-up Care
At Yale-New Haven Hospital, surgeons closely monitor patients after all weight-loss procedures. Routine follow-up visits are scheduled at two weeks, two months, six months, and 12 months following surgery. When necessary, visits may continue further out. During these exams, physicians review personalized health, diet, exercise, medication and vitamin/mineral requirements and track progress with patients. These visits are also a good time for patients to discuss any post-operative problems or concerns with their surgeons.
Free Bariatric Support Group
Our free bariatric patient support group meets monthly and welcomes individuals considering, preparing for, and working to stay on track after weight-loss surgery. The group is led by Elizabeth McMahon, Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
