Supplementation Options Post Bariatric Surgery

Hello, my name is Angela Cole and I am a physician’s assistant with Blossom Bariatrics. I would like to talk to you, a little bit today, about nutritional supplementation that can be taken alongside your oral supplements by I.V. or injection.

If you are considering or preparing for bariatric surgery, you have probably heard a lot of information about how important nutrition is to your recovery. That’s because, in order to heal from surgery, you need to have adequate nutritional intake.

A common side effect of bariatric surgery is nutritional deficiency, including vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. A very common reason for these nutrient deficiencies is it is difficult for your body to absorb the nutrients you take by mouth.

That’s the advantage of taking nutrients by I.V. or injection. Blossom Bariatrics offers a variety of nutritional supplements given by I.V. injection, including the Myer’s Cocktail, B complex injections, biotin injections, and some other injections that can help support the immune system while you are trying to recover from surgery.

The result of better nutrition is faster healing times, fewer complications, and an increased energy level during your recovery.

Thank you for watching. If you have any questions, please visit our website at
