The Mount Sinai Program for Surgical Weight Loss Team

The Team Approach to Weight Loss Surgery
Weight Loss Surgery is substantially different from other types of general surgery. In addition to working closely with your surgeon, you will work together with a whole team of dedicated weight-loss surgery professionals. Before your surgery, you will meet with your surgeon, one of our nurses or physician assistants, a psychologist or psychiatrist, a gastroenterologist, a nutritionist, and possibly others.

It is only through a coordinated team effort that we can obtain the best possible results!



How Does the Team Work Together?
When you first contact the Mount Sinai Program for Surgical Weight Loss, you will speak with one of our medical assistants who may ask you some questions about your health background. You will be asked to complete a comprehensive health questionnaire before your first visit. The can be downloaded from our website (click here to download) or mailed to you if needed.

When you arrive for your first visit, you will meet Dana, our Nurse Practitioner who serves as our Weight Loss Surgery Program Coordinator, and one of our medical assistants. They will review your health questionnaire to ensure that it is complete and may ask you additional questions about your health history.

Afterwards, you will meet with one of our team's surgeons, who will speak with you in considerable depth about the different surgical options that are available to you.

It is important to remember that there is no "one best operation" for weight loss that works for everybody. After carefully reviewing your weight loss, medical, and surgical history, your surgeon will be able to help you identify the best operation for you.
