Many surgeons require psychological assessments before they will perform elective surgery. Edgewood provides pre-operative psychological assessments for candidates considering bariatric surgery, pain pump implants, and other procedures. Our goal is to prepare you for the procedure and comprehend the risks and potential consequences of your decision.
Evaluations take three hours to complete and include both a computerized assessment and an interview with a psychologist. Recommendations and psychometric test scores are documented for insurance purposes and for your medical team. The majority of candidates that meet are approved for the procedure. Results are ready for you and your physician within one week of the assessment. If barriers are identified, we will work with you and your physician to help overcome your obstacles.
Edgewood also offers post-surgical counseling to help you reach your goals to maintain optimal health.
