Getting Started

  • Your best outcome from weight loss surgery at Einstein Bariatrics begins with education and a comprehensive evaluation before your surgery.

    We want you to understand all that's involved, to help ensure your long-term weight-loss. Our team will explain the entire process and schedule an appointment to get you started.

    Here's how to begin:

    Step 1

    FREE Information Session
    Attend a free information session where you can meet members of our bariatrics team, ask questions, and learn all about the bariatic process. The session is a comfortable way to hear about the latest procedures available as well as the lifestyle changes that are required to achieve long-term weight loss. Feel free to bring friends and loved ones.

    Step 2

    Initial Consultation
    Schedule an in-depth one-on-one consultation with an Einstein Bariatrics surgeon, to discuss details about the surgery, its benefits and potential complications. The initial consultation enables us to design a plan of action to match your individual needs. Our offices are conveniently located in Elkins Park and East Norriton, Pennsylvania.

    Lifestyle Management
    A complete lifestyle management program helps prepare you for surgery, and for your new life afterwards. You'll meet with a registered dietitian and psychologist.

    Your before surgery process also includes:

    Insurance approval: Many insurance policies cover bariatric surgery, as long as you meet specified criteria. Einstein Bariatrics insurance liaisons assist you with the approval process required by an insurance carrier.

    Please know, Einstein Bariatrics cannot predict whether your surgery will be approved.

    Final consultation: Two weeks before surgery you will have a consultation to review the consent form, preoperative diet and any additional preoperative testing.
