Patients who live outside of the Bay Area can still receive excellent care from Elite Surgical Center by simply following these steps:
The first step is to let us know that you are interested in care at Elite Surgical Center, and to tell us a little bit about yourself and your current struggles with obesity. At this time, our staff can set up a consultation with one of our bariatric specialists.
During the consultation, our doctor(s) will discuss with each individual patient their options, including the benefits and risks of each procedure. While these consultations are helpful in beginning a dialogue between doctor and patient, it is important to remember that they are strictly of an educational nature intended to help patients to ask more questions, and are not intended to diagnose or treat any specific medical or surgical conditions. Every patient has unique circumstances that must be considered in concert with appropriate clinical studies to arrive at the appropriate course of treatment.
If it is determined that weight loss surgery is right for you, our staff will help plan the details of your trip to have surgery or further examination at Elite Surgical Center. Because we are an outpatient facility, this may include planning accommodations for your recovery period depending on your procedure and travel distance.
As with any surgical procedure, recovery time from weight loss surgery varies based on the individual, but it is typical for many patients to return to work after about a week and to resume all normal activities within six weeks. It is important that you have someone travel with you when you have your procedure, in order to supervise your transportation, rest, and recovery in the immediate days after your procedure.
