Ochsner Baton Rouge’s bariatric surgery program is a comprehensive weight loss approach in which a patient works with registered dieticians, a social worker and a physician. “We want to provide our patients the best possible chance for success,” says Dr. Jeansonne. “To do this we must treat the whole patient, both mentally and physically, and we must arm them with the skills and tools they will need to maintain their new weight.”
