Preoperative Diet

Before bariatric surgery, patients need to undergo a preoperative diet in order to help prepare their body and organs for surgery. The surgery will be easier on both the surgeon and the patient if the patient is able to lose a small amount of weight before surgery. 
In this video, Dr. Matthew Weiner explains the medical reasons to adhere to a preoperative diet and outlines exactly what should be eaten to insure a successful weight loss surgery with little to no complications.
