Your body’s health is dependent on the health of your mind. The World Health Organization defines health as not only the “absence of disease but as a state of physical, mental and social well being.”
Our physicians, dietitians, nutritionists and counselors work together and with you to come up with the best program—one that will ensure your success. We believe our support groups and wellness classes can inspire you as a patient to help others as they help themselves. From pre-op through post-op, you’ll always get the help and guidance you need to build a happier, healthier life.
Long-term wellness is all about engaging in a more well rounded, fuller life—and at the Khalili Center we think that involves a lot more than just fitness, therapy, support groups and nutrition classes. There are a lot of ways your life will be impacted by rapid weight loss, and above all we want you to enjoy life and have fun. That’s why we bring in experts to lead seminars in life coaching, socializing forums, clothes shopping, beauty makeovers and many other lifestyle topics.
At the Khalili Center, you’ll have lots of opportunities to talk with patients who have successfully undergone bariatric surgery and share their life experiences. Not only is this a great source of moral support, it’s also the best way to educate yourself about the various options that are available to you. We’ll put you in touch with people who may end up being your friends for life, and help you develop support networks that will be an ongoing source of information and encouragement.
Therapy can take many forms, and in keeping with our commitment to be your partner for life, the Khalili Center sponsors a variety of programs to help you stay on your wellness regimen after your surgery. Talk to your surgeon about the options we offer and discuss the programs that are best suited to your needs.
Mobilizing the power of the Internet to connect people to other people as well as information, the Khalili Center has established an eCommunity—including online forums that allow you get to support online at anytime. Through online conversations, you can share experiences, ask questions and get unbiased support and inspiration. It’s important to have advocates and friends who are going through the same process.
