Consultation

The first step in determining if bariatric surgery is appropriate for you is to attend one of Dr. St. Laurent's live informational seminars or complete the online Emmi program for the procedure that your are interested in. Once this has been accomplished, a consultation with Dr. St. Laurent can be scheduled. Here he can answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding weight-loss surgery such as:

  • Are you a candidate for bariatric  surgery
  • How to calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index)
  • Is surgery an effective treatment for obesity
  • How the surgery is performed
  • What are associated risks and complications
  • What kind of weight loss to expect
  • Life after surgery

Please remember to bring the following to your appointment

  • Your patient forms and records, completely filled out
  • Your insurance card. Please fax an enlarged copy of this card ahead of your appointment to  281-921-1897
  • All prescriptions and over-the-counter medication you are currently taking
  • A list of all questions and concerns you may have

Qualifying Factors May Include

  • History of documented dietary weight loss attempts
  • Lifelong commitment to dietary, exercise, and medical guidelines and follow-up care
  • Psychological evaluation

Together, you and your bariatric surgeon take steps to determine

  • If surgery is the right treatment for you
  • Which type of procedure is right for you
  • If you are mentally and emotionally prepared to make lifelong lifestyle changes
  • That you have, or will have, the necessary support system around you

Expect the pre-qualification process to include a series of tests. You also will meet with a nutritionist, psychologist, and other support staff members in sessions leading up to surgery. Each healthcare professional will help you prepare for the changes and challenges that lie ahead.

If you believe bariatric surgery would improve your health and well-being, contact  our office  to begin a conversation and start the pre-qualification process.
