Pre-Bariatric Psychological Evaluations | Ouachita Behavioral Health and Wellness

Pre-Bariatric Psychological Evaluations

Pre-Bariatric Psychological Evaluations

Pre Bariatric psychological evaluations are usually required by your surgeon and your insurance company.

Most surgeons recognize that weight loss surgery is not only a medical issue, but also a life-changing event. Your surgeon wants to make sure that you are emotionally ready for the surgery and that you understand the surgery risks and outcomes and have the support needed to make lifestyle and behavioral changes after surgery.

An evaluation ensures that you are: Able to make such a decision, understand the consequences of your decision, and have no underlying psychological conditions that would prohibit you from adhering to the life changes that are required following surgery
