    About Us

    Medical Group of the Carolinas-Weight Loss Services is designated by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program as a Center of Excellence. We work to improve the overall quality of life for patients and their families by providing the most complete medical, surgical and follow-up care possible.

    Prior to a patient’s first appointment, all new patients must attend a weight loss information session. At this free session, potential patients will be given information regarding the process for making the first appointment and are given the opportunity to ask questions regarding weight loss surgery, as well as to receive information regarding their insurance requirements.

    Surgical Weight Loss

    We specialize in the care of patients undergoing weight loss surgery and are dedicated to helping individuals improve their quality of life.

    Discharge Instructions

    • Check temperature twice daily for the first week – call if fever exceeds 101 F.
    • You may shower but no swimming or tub baths until 10 days after surgery. Notify us of any redness or drainage from the incision.
    • Contact us if you have vomiting or diarrhea that lasts more than 24 hours or abdominal pain that persists for more than four hours.
    • Use your incentive spirometer four times a day for 10 days.
    • Work your way up to at least 30 minutes of walking daily.
    • Increased gas is common for the first 3-6 weeks. We recommend Gas-X®, Digel® or Mylicon drops, chews, or strips for relief.
    • Do NOT take anti-inflammatory pain medication unless approved by your surgeon (e.g. ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, Aleve, etc.)
    • Take vitamin and calcium supplements daily, once you have attended post-op class.
    • To avoid possible injury to an unborn child, female patients SHOULD NOT BECOME PREGNANT for at least 18 months, when the weight loss has stabilized.

    Insurance & Billing

    We request payment of all office visits at the time of service. Co-pays are required for all insured patients. If you have questions concerning fees, our office or Physicians Billing Service at 864-560-4304 or 877-596-2455 will be glad to assist you.
