The South Shore Hospital Center for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery launched a Weight-Loss Surgery App giving patients, who have either had or are interested in weight-loss surgery, consistent information reviewed and approved by experts from our bariatric surgery program.
Patients can use the app to learn more about the clinical team, view surgical offerings, determine if they qualify for bariatric surgery, register for informational sessions, learn new recipes, and track their overall progress post-surgery. The app also allows patients to track appointments and alerts them to resources that are available to help them succeed, including support groups and specially tailored exercise programs.
“The new app is another important tool in navigating the critical life changes that are required for long-term weight loss success,” said Neil Ghushe, MD, Medical Director of the Center for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Content on the app will continually be reviewed and updated, incorporating feedback and suggestions from patients and their families.
The app is available on both iTunes and Google Play by searching “South Shore Hospital Weight-Loss Surgery.”
