Weight Loss Surgery SUCCESS Program

Weight Loss Surgery SUCCESS Program

BayCare offers a number of extensive programs to help its patients lead better lives. BayCare’s SUCCESS program for weight loss surgery was designed to help post-surgical patients meet their goals. The post-surgical commitment to lifestyle changes is just as necessary as the surgery.

SUCCESS can be specifically matched to each patient’s weight loss goals. Appointments can be made around busy schedules and a program navigator is assigned to each patient to help guide participants through each step.

Key Elements to BayCare’s SUCCESS Program

BayCare Weight Loss Surgery is committed to helping you succeed after your bariatric procedure. Making positive lifestyle choices after surgery to set yourself up for weight loss success is as important as the surgery itself. From Post Surgery Support groups, special topic classes, nutrition check-ins, patient events and availability to consult with one of our bariatric program psychologists, dietitians or fitness specialists when needed, we have the team to support you on your journey. Contact the BayCare hospital program where you had your procedure to learn about the specific SUCCESS offerings available to you.

How to Start Your SUCCESS

The fee for the SUCCESS program is waived if you completed a bariatric surgery procedure through BayCare. All others are welcome to begin the program for a flat rate of $349.
