At The New York Bariatric Group, we take pride in our all-inclusive approach to bariatric surgery. Our one-day presurgical workup for patients allows them to embrace all the changes that come along with undergoing bariatric procedures and get on their way to their goals by expeditiously completing the pre-operative surgical clearances requirement.
The endocrinologist specializes in diseases of the endocrine (hormone) organs and the in the management of diabetes. The endocrinology clearance is only applicable for those patients with diabetes. The endocrinologist will help determine whether there are any hormonal causes of obesity that should be addressed before surgery.
