Screening Before Your Bariatric Procedure

At Valley Urgent Care, we provide thorough preoperative screenings for bariatric surgery to ensure you are in optimal health before your procedure. Our comprehensive evaluations help identify and mitigate potential risks, ensuring a safe and successful surgical outcome.

Ensuring Safe and Successful Outcomes

Bariatric surgery is a significant medical procedure aimed at aiding weight loss for individuals with obesity. Pre-operative screening is a critical step in the process, involving a series of medical evaluations to assess your overall health and identify any conditions that need to be addressed before surgery. This comprehensive approach ensures that you are well-prepared and minimizes the risk of complications.

Comprehensive Health Assessments

Our pre-op screening process begins with a detailed health assessment. This includes a thorough review of your medical history, current medications, and any previous surgeries. Our healthcare professionals will conduct a complete physical examination to evaluate your overall health status. This step is crucial in identifying any underlying conditions that may affect your surgery or recovery.

Diagnostic Testing

As part of the pre-op screening, we perform a variety of diagnostic tests to ensure you are fit for surgery. These tests may include blood tests, electrocardiograms, chest X-rays, and pulmonary function tests.

Psychological Evaluation

Bariatric surgery is not only a physical journey but also a psychological one. Our pre-op screening includes a psychological evaluation to ensure you are mentally and emotionally prepared for the lifestyle changes that accompany weight loss surgery. This evaluation helps in identifying any psychological conditions that need to be addressed before surgery, ensuring you have the support and resources needed for a successful outcome.

Personalized Care Plans

Based on the results of your pre-op screening, our healthcare team will develop a personalized care plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan includes recommendations for optimizing your health before surgery, such as managing chronic conditions, adjusting medications, or undergoing additional evaluations if needed. Our goal is to ensure you are in the best possible condition for your bariatric procedure.
