Bariatric rehabilitation program

 
 

New Dimensions is a bariatric surgery rehabilitation program offered at Epworth Camberwell.


Using a holistic approach, the program helps patients recover and achieve long term weight goals after weight-loss surgery.


New Dimensions empowers patients to shift current behaviours and make informed choices to improve their quality of life. 


Patients who achieve the best results after weight-loss surgery make long -term commitments to maintaining ​a new lifestyle. This includes ongoing, calorie-controlled diet and exercise. Surgery alone is not a long-lasting solution.


The 12-week program includes:


  • individually prescribed exercise
  • hydrotherapy
  • psychological and emotional support
  • nutritional and lifestyle advice.

After finishing the program, monthly reviews over a one-year-period support patients in ongoing self-management. 


The program can be accessed after the following weight-loss procedures:


  • ​gastric bypass
  • gastric balloon
  • gastric sleeve
  • lap band surgery.
