A major component for success after undergoing gastric bypass surgery is follow up. Your surgeon will tell you when to make your first appointment after your discharge. Generally, bypass patients are seen within one to two weeks after discharge. It is the patient's responsibility to make and keep all appointments.

To schedule an appointment call: (313) 745-4195.

If you are told that your surgeon does not have an opening on the given date that you were directed to see your surgeon let the receptionist know that you were given this specific date. Accommodations are almost always made.

The general follow up schedule is as follows:

  • First year: 1-2 weeks after surgery, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months,12 months.
  • Second year: 18 months, 24 months.
  • Third year and beyond: one visit annually.

Blood work is generally obtained at 6 months and 12 months the first year after the operation. In some situations your surgeon may choose to check your general blood work as well as vitamin and mineral levels more often. You will be required to have your blood work evaluated at least once a year for the rest of your life.
