The Cleveland Clinic Introduction


The Cleveland Clinic Bariatric and Metabolic Institute is a comprehensive program providing you with personalized attention as you work toward your weight-loss goal. An entire team of professionals, led by board-certified surgeons, works to provide superior care for our patients. The team comprises professionals from many disciplines: surgeons, physicians, anesthesiologists, psychologists and counselors, specialized nurses, special surgical fellows (surgeons receiving advanced training in bariatric surgery), dietitians, coordinators and more. 

Our specialists will work with your primary care physician to learn about you and any medical conditions you have that will require special attention. They will communicate with your physician about your course of surgery and recovery, including any special needs or medication changes as a result of weight-loss surgery.
