Patient Readiness & Education for Obesity Surgery Program (PREOP)

PREOP is a three or six-month program designed to educate and prepare patients who are considering weight loss surgery. This comprehensive program is physician-monitored and includes regular dietary, exercise, and psychological instruction and support. Additionally, most insurance companies require that patients have participated in a physician-monitored weight loss program within the recent past. PREOP is designed to comprehensively prepare people to optimally succeed with weight loss surgery, and it also meets the above insurance requirement for most medical insurance companies.

Program Cost: $750 (all inclusive)
