Weight Loss Surgery Evaluations
Evaluation doctors require before you get a weight loss surgery.
Physicians and surgeons often request that patients obtain a psychological evaluation before they get a weight loss surgery. A psychological evaluation can help us determine many things, including:
- Your understanding of the risks and benefits associated with the surgery;
- Whether you have realistic post-surgery expectations
- Psychological and emotional barriers to a successful surgery and recovery
- Adequate coping skills to address unexpected recovery obstacles
Psychological evaluations will help you prepare mentally and emotionally for your surgery process.
