- Did you not lose as much weight as expected?
- Have you regained a lot of the weight you initially lost after surgery?
- Have both of these things happened??
If your answer to any of these questions is YES, then getting to your BEST WEIGHT might still be important to you.
Second chances don’t always come along, and when they do, it’s usually smart to jump at the opportunity. If your original weight loss goals have been derailed, Dr. Quebbemann knows how to give you a second chance, how to get you back on track.
To find out if you are a good candidate for getting back on track, you need to answer these questions; Are you committed to achieving a weight where you can live the life you want, and are you willing to work with a program designed to help you meet your goal? If you answer yes to both of these questions, then our clinic can help you.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Quebbemann and start the assessment process. Dr. Quebbemann has been correcting anatomic complications, and working with patients to improve their weight loss after surgery, since 1997. (Most of the bariatric surgeons practicing today had not even started medical school in 1997. Read Dr. Quebbemann’s brief professional biography for more information.) At the time of your appointment, Dr. Quebbemann will review your weight history, the surgical procedure you had, the program you followed and the results you achieved. The next steps will be to assess your nutritional status and the current anatomy of your previous surgery. In going through this process, Dr. Quebbemann will make a recommendation on how to achieve your best weight, and discuss a plan.
The evaluation process includes;
- Initial Consultation
- Nutritional Evaluation
- Evaluate Your Anatomy as it is currently
- X-Ray testing
- Endoscopic Evaluation
- Second Consultation to discuss results and options
Dr. Quebbemann has performed hundreds of surgical revisions over the past 20+ years; he’s performed revisions after patients have been to several different surgeons and have had more than one unsuccessful surgery. However, he only recommends surgery when there is a clear benefit to be achieved. The above assessment provides the information needed to make this recommendation.
There are times when patients either never received adequate instructions and support to achieve the weight loss they desired, or they were provided excellent support but fell off track. If this is the case, our clinic will still provide the assistance needed to get your weight back on track. Our N.E.W. Fit Program can be tailored for surgical patients to help you finally achieve the weight loss you had originally hoped for. And Dr. Quebbemann’s Dietary Rebuild™ is designed to help you establish a New Normal Diet that you can live with and control your weight going forward.
The N.E.W. Program’s metabolic weight management clinic is geared towards helping you achieve your weight loss goals no matter where you are starting or what you’ve tried before.
