Kelsey has been employed with B+A Surgeons since 2018 where she works alongside our surgeons in preparing patients for bariatric surgery. She is involved in the bariatric process providing nutrition guidance before and after surgery. Included in the many topics of discussion are assistance with meal preparation and recommendations for implementing a healthy diet. After surgery, discussion will transition to setting personal goals (numerical/non scale), analyzing individual consumption patterns, providing personalized dietary recommendations, and exploring attainable lifestyle changes through a combination of diet and physical activity.
