|Our Approach to Care|
At the Kennedy Bariatric Surgery Program, everything we do is designed specifically with the unique needs of our bariatric patients in mind. And this is reflected in the way we've structured our entire program—from our surgical care team and support services to our specialized facilities.
When you choose Kennedy for your weight-loss surgery, you are treated as more than a surgical patient—we welcome you as part of our bariatric community. And our entire team of medical professionals works hard to be with you every step of the way, from your initial consultation to your post-surgical care and education, and beyond:
1. Our team of professionals will assist you with navigating the process of bariatric surgery qualification, including your medical consideration, Body Mass Index and insurance qualifications.
2. Our specialized diagnostic capabilities, including CT scan and radiology equipment specifically designed to accommodate bariatric patients, allow you to undergo any needed medical imaging studies in comfort and privacy.
3. Our experienced surgeons conduct your surgery in an operating room equipped with specialized beds and surgical equipment designed to accommodate bariatric patients.
4. Our private, post-surgery bariatric suites give you the comfort and privacy you need to recover from your surgery. Each suite is equipped with special bathroom setups for weight-loss patients, as well as a bariatric recliner for patients or their visitors. You'll also find bariatric-friendly furniture throughout our hospital to help make your stay more comfortable.
We look forward to caring for you. Contact us to begin your journey to successful, long-term weight loss and better health today.
