Why Blossom Bariatrics?

Over the years, Dr. Tom has established an excellent reputation that attracts clients from throughout North America. In fact, he accommodates out-of-towners so well, The New Economy has named him one of the best “Medical Tourism Providers” several years in a row.
Dr. Tom is dedicated to helping his out-of-state clients make their surgical weight loss treatments as convenient and stress-free as possible. Dr. Tom’s friendly team can help visiting clients arrange travel plans and hotel accommodations.
In addition, Dr. Tom offers a convenient, secure online medical records management program, Patient Portal, that helps clients monitor their progress and communicate with Dr. Tom.

Many of Dr. Tom’s out-of-state clients combine their surgical treatments with a fun-filled vacation in Las Vegas. Due to the advanced surgical technologies used by Dr. Tom, most procedures are minimally invasive and do not require lengthy recovery periods. As a result, his bariatric surgery clients can celebrate the beginning of their new lives by enjoying some of the exciting thrills offered by Las Vegas.

Like many life experiences, your weight loss surgery experience can be improved with advance planning.

There is much to consider at this exciting time, so be sure to work closely with our staff to help consider your surgery from the beginning to end. A well designed recovery can increase your safety, comfort, and peace of mind.

Who Can Take Care of Me at My Hotel After Surgery?

Traveling with a companion is necessary and the best way to ensure that your aftercare needs are met during the initial recovery period. Having a friend or family member assist you for at least 24 hours after surgery is very important.

If you are in need of a professional to take care of you after surgery, you can contact our preferred partner Henderson Home Care Assistance:

Virtual Seminar

While our local clients can easily sign up to attend a seminar with Dr. Tom in person, we understand it may be more difficult for our out-of-towners to attend. That’s why we recorded this recent seminar. Take a few moments to watch, get to know Dr. Tom, and learn some of the basics around weight loss surgery.
