Selecting an experienced bariatric surgeon to help you begin living a healthier lifestyle can be both an exciting and daunting part of your weight loss journey. Your surgeon will help you determine the most effective treatment plan to achieve your health goals and play an integral role in your ability to achieve successful long-term weight loss. While choosing the right surgeon may seem like a lot of pressure, there are many tips that can help you narrow down the vast pool of weight loss professionals in the Fort Worth region to identify the best bariatric surgeon for your needs:
- Select a qualified board-certified bariatric surgeon who is trained in bariatric surgery. Dr. Hossein Bagshahi is not only fully accredited by the American Board of Surgery, but he also has the rare distinction of being a Fellow of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
- Choose a surgeon who has experience with a wide range of weight loss techniques. In most cases, a broader range of weight loss options can help ensure you find an optimal approach that is suited to your unique needs. Dr. Bagshahi offers an array of surgical, non-surgical, robotic-assisted, and minimally invasive treatments so each patient is well-equipped to find the best technique for their unique needs and lifestyle.
- Find a practice with an experienced medical weight loss team. Feeling well-supported before and after your bariatric procedure is critical to your overall success. Make sure to select a weight loss surgeon who offers a continuum of care and who is backed by a friendly, knowledgeable medical team that can help guide you through the surgical process.
- Schedule a consultation with a prospective surgeon. Equally important as your post-surgical results is your ability to feel comfortable under your bariatric surgeon’s care. Once you find a surgeon who you believe is qualified, booking a consultation to meet him/her is the next step towards achieving your weight loss goals.
With a highly qualified, professional, and compassionate bariatric surgeon on your team, you can feel confident and supported in your weight loss progress.
