Bariatric nurse Judy Tanielian shares which bariatric procedure is most successful.
Nurse Judy Tanielian:
A lot of times patients come to us and ask which type of bariatric surgery is the best, and it varies with the individual’s circumstances and so that’s why we give patients an overview of all of the surgeries we perform here at Tri-City Regional Medical Center and ask them to consult with their physician about which surgery is best for them.
