While our Weight Management clinicians can explain different types of weight loss surgery, we do not refer or arrange these procedures at the WBPCN. If you are considering bariatric surgery, please talk to your Physician - to pursue this treatment option further, you will need to be referred to a bariatric clinic in Edmonton.
Our Weight Management team frequently provides follow-up support for patients who have had bariatric surgery completed, regardless of whether the procedure was completed in Canada or internationally. We can help you to manage your food intake, and help to guard against nutrient deficiencies and other issues which are sometimes seen following bariatric surgery.
You may be referred directly to the WBPCN for follow-up care by your local family physician. After an initial assessment by our Adult Weight Management Team, you may access any of our Adult Weight Management services and clinicians for ongoing support.
Prior to accessing WBPCN services, your physician
must refer you to the
Edmonton Adult Bariatric Surgery Revision Clinic to be assessed and cleared.
