Bariatric surgeon: When weight loss surgery is discussed, a weight loss surgery center should be consulted as well as the health plan. Weight loss is a coordinated effort that involves dietary counseling, attempt to intentionally loose weight, and then bariatric surgery, plus follow up to help with maintaining the life style changes that are required to prevent gaining weight again.
