EMMC Surgical Weight Loss Physical Therapists

Physical activity is another key component that leads to success after surgical weight loss. Many of our patients are limited in their physical abilities because of their weight before surgery. EMMC Surgical Weight Loss arranges for our patients to meet with surgical weight loss physical therapists at EMMC Rehabilitation Care before surgery. Together, they create an activity program that readies the body for surgery and helps minimize surgical risks.

After surgery, when the surgeon says it is ok to participate in an activity program, physical therapists work with the patient to create a program based upon each individual patients needs. Our patients are offered free use of EMMC Rehabilitation Care's Outpatient Center's gym for three months once they are cleared by their surgeon after weight loss surgery.
