Nutritional Counseling
Dietitians with the Nutrition Services Department at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano provide a variety of nutrition counseling services to bariatric surgery patients. Once it is determined that bariatric surgery is right for you, your physician may ask you to meet with one of our experienced registered dietitians. Your dietitian will provide you with healthy eating guidelines to follow post-surgery, assist in developing a customized meal plan and answer any questions you may have about the types of food you may eat after surgery.

Registered, licensed dietitians at Texas Health Plano provide one-on-on nutrition and behavior modification counseling. The dietitians are highly skilled to meet the unique needs of each weight loss surgery client. To learn more about nutrition counseling services, call 972-981-8444.
