Three Track Educational Program
Through the MedStar Franklin Square Bariatric Surgery Program, patients have access to a multidisciplinary support team of physicians, nurses, program coordinator, registered dieticians, exercise physiologists and therapists who take an active role in the creation, development and coordination of your entire weight loss program.
The MedStar Franklin Square Bariatric Surgery Program is the only center in the northeastern region to offer an exclusive Three Track Treatment Option to ensure all patients' needs are met.
Designed for patients with no prior weight management or surgical program attendance or education. Highly recommended for all who are considering bariatric surgery.
Designed for individuals who are required to complete three months of a medically supervised weight loss program, or for individuals who need to learn about dietary and lifestyle changes related to bariatric surgery.
Designed for individuals who have completed a six-month medically supervised weight loss program. Track 3 is a two-hour refresher course. Candidates must be prepared to provide documentation of completion of a 6-month weight loss management class to include, but not limited to, label reading, need for exercise, stress management and post-op bariatric care (supplement/vitamins and prevention of complications). Candidates must also be familiar with the post-op diet guidelines.
* Assignment of tracks will be based on the consultation with your bariatric surgeon and program coordinator.
