Start Your Journey to a Better Life Today
Meet Your Specialist Bariatric Team
Following a referral from your GP, our practice manager will contact you and offer an appointment with the BetterLife team. At this appointment you will meet your surgeon Mr. Atalla, as well as your Dietitian and Nurse Practitioner. We will discuss your health and lifestyle goals, you will learn more about the surgical options and which one is best for you and also gain an understanding of the nutritional and lifestyle management required to ensure success.
Review Consult With Your Surgeon
At your review appointment, we will work with you to determine the most suitable surgical option for your individual needs and then schedule your upcoming surgery. The practice manager and bariatric liaison will be touch with you regarding costs, surgery date, dietitian and nurse practitioner appointments.
Surgery & Hospital Stay
The day has arrived, for you to take the next step in your weight loss journey. Mr. Atalla will perform your surgery today and you will be expected to stay in hospital 1 – 2 nights. You will be monitored closely and discharged when ready. Remember to take your dietitian recommended Optifast or Formulite to hospital as it is part of your nutritional diet whilst an inpatient.
Mr. Atalla will review you post operatively 1-2 weeks post surgery but you will be contacted by our practice nurse and bariatric liaison within the first few weeks to check in and monitor your progress. You may contact us at any time in this period to clarify any questions or concerns.
You will continue to have follow up appointments at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 3 months,6 and 9 months post surgery. Then Mr Atalla will see you on your anniversary dates or if you feel you need to see him at any stage. Your nutrition and dietary intake will be monitored by our dietitian and vitamin and mineral levels will be checked through routine blood tests organised by our practice nurse. We highly recommend that you attend these consults as they are helpful in achieving better long term results.
