Potential Pre-Operative Testing

Before undergoing surgery, your bariatric care team MAY perform one or several pre-operative tests. Many of these laboratory tests are required in order to receive coverage from your health insurance provider. Each test helps your care team understand the full scope of your health and can inform which weight loss procedure is best for you.

Obesity and morbid obesity are often linked to other conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. Whether your bariatric care team wants to learn more about your blood sugar levels or heart function, pre-operative tests give them a holistic view of your health and wellbeing.
