Bariatric Surgery Program

CORE is also part of the Bariatric Surgery Program at Temple University.  CORE psychologists and dietitians see patients pre-operatively to educate them regarding the behavioral and nutritional changes necessary for surgery and to determine their readiness for surgery.   The CORE Program is available for pre- and post-surgical behavioral and lifestyle counseling and support.
