Bariatric Bridges

Bariatric Bridges is an online program that is designed to help you with the transition from your surgery center into real life. We know that surgery is a tool. We help fill up the rest of your tool box with the most current, practical and innovative techniques that will help you find your way in your journey. Your Bariatric center gives you the guidelines, we help you develop the foundation to carry them out.

Our
Mission

Our Mission

The mission of Bariatric Bridges is to bridge the connection between general surgical guidelines and each patient’s personal journey towards implementing them. We take 30 years of combined professional experience and filter it, to bring you the most relevant, innovative and doable techniques to support patients’ processes. It is our intention to help patients find a network of support, find their strength and creativity and to simplify the “how to” into day to day routines. We are committed to helping patients match their mind to their mission.

What We Do

Bariatric Bridges is an online educational program run and designed by a nutritionist and social worker to help patients at all stages in the surgical journey. We can do evaluation clearances during the work up, as well as online educational groups that help patient’s develop tools and insight before having surgery. We have post operative groups to support the development of good habits or to help patients get back on track. We also offer education groups for patient’s seeking revisional procedures. We focus on education, process and connection. This is a group that patients can find like minded people that they continue to work with long after the class is done. It is not therapy but many techniques are highly therapeutic.
