Weight Loss Support


Weight Loss Support ServicesAt Nicholson Clinic we know that surgery is only part of the weight loss equation. That's why we've created a team of experts to help each patient and customize a program best suited to their individual needs. Our depth of support runs deep with clinical psychologists, dietitians and fitness experts to help our patients lose weight and keep it off for good. Our psychologists provide the pre-certification and evaluations needed but are also there to help you every step of the way overcome barriers, achieve goals and give you the tools and insight needed to achieve physical and mental well-being. Our dietitians provide nutrition advice before and after surgery to set you on the path to success. And our fitness experts, skilled in bariatrics, provide instruction and exercise recommendations appropriately tailored to where you are in the process. We’ve increased our level of support to include a variety of options - online, group and 1:1 opportunities.
