As a #bariatric team, we believe in pre surgery preparation of our patients. Presurgery preparation is a win win situation for both, patient as well as the surgeon. Some of the advantages are listed below-
1. It helps the patient to lose weight before surgery. This makes the surgery easy for me and reduces anesthesia related risk for the patient. The biggest plus is that it boosts the morale of the patient and sets a positive beginning to the weight loss journey post surgery.
2. We start supplementing our patients and cover their nutritional deficiencies prior to #bariatricsurgery. This helps to build them up and the chances of post surgery #nutritional deficiencies is decreased.
3. #Incentive #spirometry is very important for atleast 7 to 10 days prior to surgery. It builds up their long capacity and again helps for recovery from anesthesia.
4. #Smoking is a strict “no” and must be stopped atleast 1 month before the surgery. #Deaddiction is a very important part of the bariatric journey. Continuing smoking can lead to fatal complications after surgery.
We are firm believers in the principle that good preparation before the surgery can minimize complications post surgery.
