Bariatric surgery includes a variety of interventions that are carried out on morbidly overweight people. Weight loss can be achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with the help of a gastric band or by removing part of the stomach or forming a stomach pouch, i.e. a small part of the stomach is directly connected to the small intestine (gastric bypass surgery).

The processes of bariatric surgery are very demanding for the patient, both physically and mentally. The decision for the operation is made interdisciplinary in the hospital and the criteria are very high. The care process is very comprehensive, several pre- and postoperative examinations are necessary and the patient must be motivated and committed to the care process in order to achieve the best possible result.


Before surgery:

  • Understand procedure information
  • Familiarize with nutrition and medication instructions

After surgery:

  • Providing necessary recovery and wound healing instructions
  • Providing timely nutrition and medication information
  • Tracking pain diary
