Nutrition Resources for Before and After Surgery
You will meet with a registered dietitian several times before and after surgery. Our team of dietitians specializes in bariatric nutrition and is available to support you in person, over the phone, and through Patient Gateway. The dietitian phone line is open during office hours at 617-732-8884.
All patients will start a pre-operative diet two weeks before surgery. If you have diabetes and take oral medications and/or insulin, you may need to use the pre-operative diet for patients with diabetes.
