Weight loss surgery center aims to educate patients considering bariatric procedures.
Plano, TX, August 19, 2014 - The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery, a North Texas center for bariatric surgery and one of the most well-known facilities of its kind in the country, has rolled out their comprehensive list of what potential patients must know before embarking on surgery. This information, says the center’s founder, is in keeping with the clinic’s commitment to educating people about their surgery options and the ways in which they can take control of their own health.
“As an organization, we are absolutely zealous about education,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder of the Nicholson Clinic. “Performing exceptional surgeries that help meet weight loss and health goals are what we do, but we do it by following our own distinct standards. That includes ensuring that anyone who works with us completely understands the details of the surgery they have chosen, the recovery they can expect, and the lifestyle they can expect to live following surgery if they hope to reach and maintain weight loss goals.”
To that end, the Nicholson Clinic’s website offers a variety of information plus what anyone who is considering surgery should know beforehand including candidacy for surgery, , the reality of what to expect following surgery as far as the surgery itself not being a ‘magic pill’ for weight loss, and, most importantly, the commitment that each patient must have for changing their lifestyle to be in line with the new life that the surgery will provide them. Without understanding all the details surrounding the surgery and life after the surgery, says Dr. Nicholson, patients will often make decisions that are not in line with their overall goals or what is expected of them prior to - and certainly after - the surgery.
“Our website acts as a portal of information to give our patients the tools they need to make the best decisions for their health,” says Dr. Nicholson. “We want to be the go-to resource to answer any and all questions regarding weight loss surgery so that people understand their choices and how best to manage these choices for a much healthier future.”
