Even though your bariatric surgery or procedure can last less than an hour, the journey to losing a substantial amount of weight is just beginning. Becoming an expert in your post bariatric surgery diet and lifestyle is key to your long-term success.
An Expert to Guide You
One of the keys to your success after bariatric surgery or the weight loss balloon is Sharon George. Sharon is the Certified Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian for New York Bariatric Group. Specializing in Bariatric Nutrition since 2003, Sharon is a knowledgeable, compassionate, and constant resource for our patients.
To provide the best chance of success, Sharon meets with each patient before surgery to educate him or her on the nutritional aspects of life after surgery. From the beginning of your journey, Sharon is your personal dietitian.
Patients at New York Bariatric Group will find Sharon helps them make appropriate post-bariatric surgery diet changes. An expert in each procedure we perform, Sharon combines her clinical knowledge with each patient’s personal preferences to give recommendations for food choices and meal patterns. Although every patient receives a comprehensive nutritional manual based on the procedure they have, we also know that having someone to personally work with in planning menus is important. Here at the New York Bariatric Group, we make sure patients get that extra support.
