The UW bariatric surgery team sees your teen for follow-up visits, typically for the first 6 months after surgery.
Your Seattle Children’s team also keeps seeing your teen on a regular basis throughout the process, even after we refer you to UW Medicine. We are here before and after surgery to provide the ongoing care and support that help ensure success.
When your teen is ready to leave home for college or to live on their own, we work with them on maintaining their health as they become more independent. As our patients near age 21, we help them transition to adult care to stay healthy.
