The Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute (CBSI) has been a regional provider of weight loss surgery at our Center of Excellence for the past 20 years. We have successfully provided many patients from Colorado’s rural communities with high-quality bariatric surgery options. If you are ready to change your life by achieving the weight loss you desire and you do not have access to quality care in your area, CBSI at Parker Adventist Hospital in Colorado is here to help.
We understand how difficult it can be for people in rural communities to access quality medical care and we are committed to providing all of our patients with the best possible care. Our team of experienced and skilled professionals is dedicated to helping you achieve your weight loss goals, and you are welcome to meet with them prior to undergoing surgery. We are here to provide a safe and effective option for those seeking to achieve their goals
At CBSI, we are committed to offering the most efficient and comprehensive program for our patients in Colorado and those living in distant locations. Our multidisciplinary team will work with you to determine the best bariatric procedure for your needs as we strive to make every surgery and follow-up visit as safe, effective, and convenient as possible.
There are many life-changing benefits of this surgery and with CBSI, patients can expect the following advantages:
- Long-term weight loss
- Improve the quality of life
- Resolve typical health conditions from obese patients such as heart disease, type II diabetes, apnea, high blood pressure, and joint pains
Patients considering bariatric surgery can rely on our experienced surgeons to help them make informed decisions. Our team understands the importance of making the right decision for your individual health needs, and we are here to guide you every step of the way.
Rest assured that we will discuss the risks, benefits, and potential side effects of the procedure, and answer any questions you may have. Moreover, once the surgery is complete, we encourage patients to make healthier dietary changes to ensure the best weight-loss results.
At CBSI, our commitment to our patients doesn't end with the surgery. We strive to provide the highest quality of patient-centered aftercare to ensure the best possible outcomes. From follow-up check-ups to support groups, we offer a wide range of services to make sure our patients are supported throughout their recovery, no matter where they are.
After the surgery, we strongly recommend that patients remain in the area for follow-up check-ups for at least up to a week. This period is crucial for evaluating your progress and addressing any complications that may arise. However, if you must return home during this period, don't worry - our dedicated team will stay in contact with you no matter how far away you are. Having provided weight loss surgeries for nearly 20 years from Parker, Denver, and other nearby states such as Wyoming and New Mexico, we have developed systems to provide follow-up care in your hometown with your primary care physician.
As part of our aftercare program, CBSI offers a support group on the first Thursday of each month in the Denver area to make your weight-loss journey easier as you listen and discuss your experiences with other patients. However, we understand that attending these meetings regularly may be challenging for out-of-town patients.
To ensure you still have access to the necessary support, our facility can connect you with our former patients so you can chat with them, whether it be by phone or online. We also have support group events that usually take place 6 to 7 times a year that you can plan to attend, to gain meaningful information during your journey.
Additionally, you can join other support groups in your local area so you can have more regular contact with other former bariatric patients, which can be particularly useful if you’re just starting out with your weight loss period. Remember that you don't have to go through this drastic lifestyle change alone. There are many opportunities to learn from other patients and professionals who have been through similar experiences, which can help you feel more confident in setting and achieving your goals for successful weight management.
At Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute, our team will help you understand the risks and benefits of bariatric surgery. We will provide you with a comprehensive evaluation to ensure you are fit for surgery and make an informed decision. During this evaluation, we will review your medical history, lifestyle, and goals. We will also provide you with information about bariatric surgery, its health benefits, and the necessary lifestyle changes you have to follow after the treatment. If you are an out-of-town patient seeking weight loss surgery at CBSI, please contact our office at 303-861-4505. We can help you begin the process and coordinate some of the preliminary steps over the phone and by fax. Moreover, we can provide information on how to facilitate preoperative workups in your own hometown with your primary care physician, allowing you to save valuable time and travel expenses.
At CBSI, we provide a quality and comprehensive bariatric program dedicated to patients who desire long-term weight loss and improved overall health. If you are ready to achieve your weight loss goals and start on the path to a healthier and happier life, give us a call at 303-861-4505.
Once you have completed the preceding steps, we can arrange for your consultation at our office in Parker, Colorado. Surgery can usually be scheduled very soon afterward. Out-of-town patients should prepare to stay for a few days following their surgery so that Dr. Brown can evaluate them and make certain they are healing well. Follow-up after surgery can be easily coordinated by phone or email with the inclusion of your primary care physician.
Moreover, as an ASMBS Center of Excellence, CBSI will work with you and your physician to complete the necessary labs and long-term follow-ups that are both convenient and effective. Come visit us in Denver, Colorado and start your journey towards a healthier life today!
