Pre-Surgical Weight Loss Program
The Pre-Surgical Weight Loss Program is a comprehensive program designed to maximize your post-surgical results. You will be paired with a dedicated team consisting of a physical therapist, registered dietitian and exercise specialist in order to optimize your health prior to undergoing surgery. More than just a weight-loss program, the intent of this program is to address any behavioral and physical roadblocks preventing you from making the necessary lifestyle modifications to achieve a maintainable and healthy way of living. We believe that this is a continuous journey and our program will guide you from the initial phases of pre-surgical rehabilitation to your transition to a home or gym-based exercise program after your recovery.
- Visits with a licensed Physical Therapist to evaluate and develop a customized exercise routine based on your physical impairments and activity restrictions. Recommendations for injury treatment and prevention will be provided throughout the course of the program to ensure that your exercise prescription and rehabilitation is both safe and effective.
- Visits with a Registered Dietician to help you learn and develop the skills necessary to establish and maintain healthy nutrition choices. Sessions will include ongoing education and support geared toward making the sustainable changes that allow you to be successful in achieving your targeted results. One-on-one visits with a registered dietitian are included to allow participants to individually learn and develop the skills necessary to establish and maintain healthy nutrition choices. Sessions will be held every other week and will include the advanced education and emotional support necessary to be successful in achieving your targeted results
- Group educational classes will emphasize behavior modification strategies for incorporating exercise and healthy eating into a daily routine. These classes will include topics such as reading nutritional labels, recipe analysis, psychology of exercise and healthy restaurant choices. They are also intended to allow you to meet, discuss the topics and develop a sense of accountability throughout the program.
- Hour-long sessions with one of our exercises specialists to develop and modify your customized fitness program over the course of the program. This time will also be spent tracking your weight, body measurements and overall progress towards your wellness goals.
