Patient Navigators & Administration

Patient Navigators & Administration

At Cleveland Clinic’s Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, we assign each patient a patient navigator to help guide you through your weight loss journey. Our patient navigators serve as a single point of contact throughout your weight loss surgery journey and are here to offer encouragement and support every step of the way. Our navigators have over 75 years of experience getting patients through the qualification process for bariatric surgery. They understand that the process can be long and act as an honest friend and source of motivation throughout.

Our patient navigators can assist with:

  • Answering questions
  • Insurance requirements
  • Medical, nutritional and psychological requirements
  • Surgical requirements
