The physical change that accompanies bariatric surgery is just one part of a successful approach to surgical weight loss. The patients who see the best results go through a mental change as well. Bariatric surgery patients must develop a whole new relationship with food and find ways to overcome the other emotional hurdles that have blocked past attempts at weight loss. New Jersey Bariatric Center® understands this and has psychologists trained in the treatment of the bariatric patient. At any time in the pre- and post-surgery process, patients are encouraged to use this valuable resource to help them along their weight loss journey.
