Weight Loss Surgery
Dr Askew Offers the Following Weight Loss Surgeries:
Dr Askew wants all of his patients to have the best opportunities for weight loss success. He has put together a multidisciplinary care team to support his bariatric patients as he believes that best long-term outcome is achieved by a team care approach. His packages includes support from both a dietitian and psychologist, as well as an exercise physiologist available to assist with physical fitness post-operatively.
In addition to your scheduled follow-up program, there are weight loss support groups to assist you in the post-operative stages of surgery. Each month, for three months following your surgery, a speaker will present a topic relevant to weight loss and your recovery from surgery. Speakers may include exercise physiologists, dietitians, psychologists, plastic surgeons as well as previous post-op patients who will share their own stories. At these sessions you will be able to share your own experiences and any concerns you may have, as well as support and encourage one another.
Dr Askew’s team strives to be friendly and approachable. We’re here to answer your questions, ease your concerns, troubleshoot and to celebrate your successes with you.
