Weight loss clinic team guides patients through the post-surgery experience.
Plano, TX, December 15, 2014 - The Nicholson Clinic, one of the pioneers in weight loss surgery with a world-class facility in North Texas, provides its patients with a full range of services – from education and expert surgical support to after-care and post-surgery lifestyle support. This integrated service, says the founder of the clinic, follows the mission that was set forth from the facility’s inception – to be there for patients every step of the way.
“I have had the honor of performing thousands of weight loss surgeries,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, the founder of Nicholson Clinic and its lead surgeon. “And what I have found is that a good experience for the patient – and ultimately a long term successful outcome – is much more than just the surgery. The surgery is important, but equally important is the support that the patient receives throughout their experience. The Nicholson Clinic provides that .”
In addition to state-of-the-art surgical facilities, the Nicholson Clinic offers a variety of educational resources for its patients where they can learn about the procedure they are having and what to expect following the surgery, as well as a full range of support services as a part of post-surgical follow-up care. These services include nutrition support with a registered dietician, psychological support with one of the team’s clinical sychologists, and peer support through support groups. All of these pieces, says Dr. Nicholson, work in tandem to help provide a healthy foundation on which the patient can build a new, healthier life.
“For many of our patients, true weight loss – and ultimately reaching and staying at their goal weight - starts with surgery but is supported with the work they do after surgery,” says Dr. Nicholson. “It’s not enough for us to just perform surgery. We want to give our patients the tools they need to succeed and we do that through our integrated team approach. It is our privilege to provide these services and work hand in hand with our patients as they begin this new, exciting life.”
