Launch your bariatric program​

Starting A Metabolic And Bariatric Surgery Program Can Be Challenging—There Is No, “One Size Fits All”

Lynne is skilled at developing collaborative relationships and will ensure that each program receives an individualized, comprehensive assessment of its needs along with the requisite strategies to implement best practices. Launching a bariatric program requires a major financial commitment—from staffing expenses—surgeon(s), nurse, dietitian, insurance specialists and clerical support—to the cost of surgical instruments, equipment, furniture, training and marketing.
