Fast – Track Program
The fast track program is for patients that decide they want to have bariatric surgery right away. Often when patients decide they want to have bariatric surgery, they also want to have it performed within a few weeks, instead of many months that are usually required prior to having surgery due to hurdles put in place by insurance companies. Most patients that enter the fast track program have already had insurance approval elsewhere. Alternatively, they would like to seek patient financing or pay cash for their procedure to have their bariatric surgery sooner and want to bypass some of the hurdles that some insurance companies require.
Some insurance companies make it very easy to obtain insurance approval, and these patients can also enroll in the fast-track program. Patients who enter into the fast track program will come in and have a private consultation with Dr. Garber, Dr. Holover, or one of the other surgeons at The New York Bariatric Group. We will then assist them to expeditiously complete any required preoperative medical work-up. Patients will then return for a second visit and will be scheduled for their bariatric surgery shortly thereafter. After surgery you will become a permanent part of our the New York Bariatric Group Weight Loss Program and you will be invited to follow-up in our after bariatric surgery care program as well as our bariatric surgery support groups to ensure that you continue to do well.
Many patients feel that they wish they has someone who went through the surgery to talk to, when struggling with lifestyle change issues after the surgery especially in the first several months after bariatric surgery. The mentorship program pairs a patient with a previous patient volunteer to provide that resource. As opposed to the public atmosphere of bariatric surgery support groups, this is one-on-one assistance and direct interactions with somebody who has been there, and done that.
