A Program Like No Other
Surgery Is Only Part of Our Story.
“My new life began on January 3, 2001 at Barix Clinics. My experience was wonderful! They catered to me with the size of the bed, the walking area, the open spaces, and the chairs. Everyone was extremely informative and very helpful." --Nicole C.
Barix Clinics: A Program like No Other. When the NIH Consensus Statement was published in 1992, it stated that more than surgery was required for bariatric patients, and a comprehensive treatment program was recommended. While this recommendation was frequently overlooked by other organizations, Barix Clinics decided to focus on providing the most comprehensive program possible. For the last 20 years, Barix has continued that focus. Barix Clinics has offered post-recovery services for every bariatric patient we have treated. In fact, Barix has many times been asked to care for patients who had surgery at other hospitals that either didn’t provide the care needed or no longer offered bariatric surgery, because they were now focusing on the latest medical fad. At Barix we know that services such as nutritional counseling, support groups, medical follow-up, reconstructive surgery and nutritional testing will be needed years after surgery. Barix even has a program to help patients who may have gained weight but who want to avoid the same problems that led them to having bariatric surgery years earlier. Barix can provide the kind of programs others do not offer because Barix specializes in bariatric surgery. Barix performs many more surgeries each year than do general hospitals that only perform a small number of surgeries each year.
Many of the Barix family of bariatric patients are healthcare professionals themselves, and their healthcare experience gives them a special ability to compare Barix with other programs. As a nurse, Sandra B. said, “As a former operating room nurse I felt I knew a lot about bariatric surgery, but I did my research anyway. I looked at several programs in the area and decided that Barix was the program with the most comprehensive patient care including both pre-operative and post-operative support.”
