The Surgical Weight Loss Program for Teens at Cincinnati Children’s has the resources to conduct a complete evaluation of your condition in a single day. Once the required clinical documentation has been received by our office from the family and referring medical doctor, and the insurance verification has been confirmed, we will contact the family to schedule an initial evaluation.

At the initial evaluation, we will perform a full range of tests to evaluate your child’s overall health and the effect weight has had on  health and quality of life. At the end of the week – after the medical team has thoroughly reviewed all evaluation consultations, tests and lab results – we will share our findings with you and your child.
