Thank you for your interest in bariatric surgery at UCI Health!
In three to five business days, the concierge nurse navigator for our Comprehensive Weight Control Center will call or email you to discuss your specific goals and needs.
At this stage, many patients are trying to determine the best weight-loss path for their needs, whether they are a good candidate for surgery, what costs they’ll encounter and their timeline for surgery. Our nurse navigator can advise you in all these areas and help develop a personalized plan just for you.
After that, you will have all the information you need to decide if you are ready to take the next step and schedule a consultation with your surgeon.
