Dallas, Texas, March 10, 2022 – The Nicholson Clinic is widely known in Dallas, Texas for its experienced weight loss surgeons and comprehensive support. However, what many people do not know is what this entails. It’s crucial to understand that weight loss requires commitment to a new lifestyle and a strong support system to succeed. The Nicholson Clinic has formed a team of specialized experts in the weight loss field to help each patient with their specific needs.

In addition to our experienced medical staff, we have highly regarded specialized providers to help patients with diet/nutrition, fitness and psychological needs. Options vary from in-person to virtual and one-on-one to group settings. Every staff member works together alongside the patient to provide superior weight loss services, including physical and mental targets and support.

Before undergoing surgery, patients should meet with a clinical psychologist to determine their specific challenges, goals, and to obtain an understanding of their mindset and the role it plays in weight loss. This protocol is highly beneficial to provide patients with the tools they will need to succeed. This idea ensures that patients receive an individualized method of weight loss, and weight maintenance, with the necessary psychological support to be highly successful and prevent patients from falling back into their previous routines, habits, and mindsets.

Diet is also a vital part of the weight loss process. Professional dietitians will work with each patient to create a personalized plan based on their individual analysis. Dietitians provide nutrition advice before and after surgery to set you on the path to success. Together you set goals and plans for pre-and post-surgery. Our patient educators/medical assistants also offer pre-op and post-op nutrition advice, support and guidance to along the way.

Following this, fitness experts, skilled in bariatrics, can help you determine a fitness regimen, based on your individual needs. They will provide instruction and exercise recommendations appropriately tailored to where you are in the process.

Each step of the comprehensive support process should be followed by your doctor and medical team and may need to be adapted as the process continues, which is why follow-up appointments with your doctor are crucial.

This one-of-a-kind support system not only includes one-on-one support with medical professionals who are a part of the weight loss surgery and treatment protocol, but it also includes additional options such as online support and group support. The structure and support provided are nothing less than superlative.
