Our nursing team will prepare you to go home. At El Camino Hospital, our nurses are specialists in bariatric nursing, and they not only have the latest skills and knowledge but also are passionate about helping you gain greater well-being. They will be your constant resource helping in your immediate recovery and preparing you to assume a new way of living when you leave our facility.

You’ll receive detailed instructions on caring for your incisions, pain management and instruction/adherence to the new eating habits you’ll be establishing. Most patients can resume normal work activities within two to three weeks after weight loss surgery.
