This is an exciting time to be part of medicine, and Blossom Bariatrics is also on the cutting edge of innovation. The practice was one of the first to recognize that Las Vegas is becoming a medical destination and became part of that trend. Now Blossom Bariatrics is offering improved programs for its continuing commitment to patient care before, during and after any procedure performed. The doctor and staff understand that there is more to the practice than surgery.
What are some of the upgraded programs Blossom Bariatrics is offering?
We are now offering our own pharmacy at Blossom Bariatrics so patients can get their medications here. Patients come to class, get their medication and are ready for their surgery for convenience and as part of the total practice.
There is Blossom Buddies, with a support group held at the office and also available online for our out-of-town clients. All patients are welcomed to participate, whether they already have had surgery or are looking into having a procedure done. We offer support, coaching and encouragement during this process. In fact, one of our certified therapists is a bariatric patient herself. The best part: The program is free.
Blossom Bites is our nutrition program and all of our patients attend a class held by our in-house fitness and nutrition specialist. This is an ongoing program, and our nutritionist is always available to answer questions whether it is before or after surgery. We have patients who had surgery a year ago asking questions, and we are there to support them. Patients who are gaining weight, not losing the weight or have other concerns can always reach out. There are also videos online with new information and motivation.
Blossom Bodies is our fitness program catering to bariatric patients. We offer videos with low-impact exercise routines. We have also introduced movable devices called the Movable Band so our patients can track how many steps they take daily, weekly and monthly. Competitions are held to encourage our patients to move more, and our in-house fitness specialist is there to help with any issues.
Blossom Beauty helps patients to embrace their new body. Partnering with Image Empowering, this is online with some events held in the office. We want our patients to love their new body they have blossomed into and enjoy shopping again. This program is designed to help our patients understand their new body and dress with style.
