Through research, we would like to link bariatric surgery follow-up with current projects in the Chronic Diseases division, with the goal of developing interventions that would optimize patient health care services. We are currently working closely with patients admitted for surgery, which allows us to direct them to the appropriate project.
We want to better characterize patients undergoing bariatric surgery at Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal in order to optimize their outcomes following surgery. Ultimately, this could allow us to develop better interventions and improve the quality of care.
