A representative from the company stated, "Techniques have become very advanced so to further the efficacy of our treatment, we feel it is important to advise patients of the appropriate recovery time, adjustment period, change in diet, food, and beverage consumption, and exercise habits. The mental and emotional adjustment period is also very important to address. Together these components offer our patients the best possible care available today."
The Queens Center for Bariatric Surgery believes that having the support of friends and family members both emotionally and mentally is of utmost importance.
