Bariatric Surgery Evaluation
Our experts can help determine if you or your child is a candidate for weight loss surgery through our bariatric surgery evaluation. For some overweight or obese individuals, weight loss (bariatric) surgery may be an option.
Excess weight is not a mental health problem. However, psychological symptoms can be common before and after weight loss surgery. We suggest adults and adolescents participate in effective eating and mood disorder treatments both before and after surgery. Mood disorders can include depression, psychological disorders, and social impairments.
Mount Sinai offers the following resources for obesity and weight management problems before, after, or instead of, bariatric surgery:
- Family-based weight loss
- Individual cognitive behavioral therapy
- Support through the Noom health app
