    Reading Time: 2 minutes In recent years, bariatric surgery has gained recognition not only for its remarkable impact on weight reduction but also for its complex health benefits that extend beyond shedding excess weight.

    • Blood tests
    • Surgeon follow up 
    • Dietitian appointments
    • Bariatric nurse follow up
