At Swedish Medical Center our Bariatric Care Program is centered around the patient, focusing on their goals. Our trusted, board-certified bariatric surgeon, Dr. Richard Tillquist, is known for his minimally invasive surgical techniques that lead to faster recovery times. “We provide unique comprehensive individualized care plan for each patient to give them the best chance of becoming active and healthy again,” says Dr. Tillquist.
In the video above, you’ll learn more information about Swedish Medical Center’s Bariatric Care program. At Swedish, we have an entire team that is dedicated to providing service to our bariatric patients. Additionally, the support groups at Swedish Medical Center are free for bariatric patients, before and after surgery, and we encourage patients to talk to other patients who have had different procedures. This process will help ensure that patients have chosen the right procedure for them. Our team will then help guide each patient through this process.
Every month, patients will be weighed and we’ll consult with them in regards to the medications that they’re taking, their eating habits and whether or not they’re following the program correctly. This helps us pick up on subtle signs of other issues that may arise as patients go through the weight loss.
Swedish Medical Center also offers free bariatric seminars to men and women who are interested in learning more about bariatric surgery. During the seminar you’ll learn more information about:
- Qualifying for surgery.
- What you can expect.
