Our Comprehensive Bariatric Program
At Sun Coast Bariatrics, through years of experience and dedication to the success of our patients, we have built a world-class comprehensive bariatric surgery (lap band, gastric sleeve and band over [gastric] bypass) program focusing closely on our patients’ long-term weight loss and health.
We strive to educate our patients and help prepare them as best as possible for weight loss surgery. Each patient will receive a detailed binder of information and tools needed to have the most successful surgical outcome and experience. We will also assist each patient in the insurance approval process, coordinate all consultations, and order all preliminary tests and clearances in a convenient and timely manner.
As important as surgery is to the bariatric program, it is only the beginning. The success of our program is the aftercare, which is like no other in the Tampa Bay area. This program provides services such as weight-loss classes to meet insurance requirements, pre- and postoperative nutritional counseling, pre- and postoperative fitness consultations, postoperative educational classes, nutritional supplements, monthly bariatric support groups and supermarket shopping trips with the dietitian.
Dr. Tiffany Jessee is a leader in bariatric surgery. Helping her is a compassionate staff of health care professionals including; a bariatrician certified in obesity medicine, surgical residents, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, a licensed psychologist, personal fitness trainer, and staff members who have undergone weight loss surgery.
We hope to make the bariatric program and path to surgery as easy as possible for you and we look forward to being a part of your journey to “Discovering the New You!
