Weight-loss surgery patients pose a unique challenge for establishing long term adequate follow-up. The Obesity Control Center® has the industry’s best solution for this.
It's easy to lose interest or hope when obtaining quality post-procedure follow-up care requires traveling long distances. There are also time and cost issues. Unfortunately, these issues can lead to minor health problems that, when ignored, can evolve into major complications.
For these reasons we developed the industry's most comprehensive and efficient follow-up care program. It is a unique automated program that tracks the patient from the time of scheduling to five years after the surgical procedure. Materials and reminders are sent out at exact dates based on the patients' date of surgery and the interactive nature of these web-based presentations is that they tend to detect problems before they happen.
The system is completely private and user-friendly and it rewards patients after completing surveys with online seminar presentations that match their progress in the timeline after surgery. All educational material has been developed and presented by expert physicians in the field. Obesity Control Center®, an International Center of Excellence, is a world leader in this important stage in the weight loss process.
Through this innovative platform, we can track, assess and educate the patient effectively, and achieve high rates of success. Our goal is to have more than 95% of our Tijuana bariatric surgery patients in consistent follow-up for the first two years and maintain at least a 90% follow-up rate for the five years after surgery.
