While bariatric surgery is the gold standard in treating obesity and related conditions, most patients experience significant weight regain.

The Solution

Improving long-term outcomes means reimagining the way services are delivered, reconnecting broken pathways, and shifting to a more patient-centered approach to care.

truMED supports this modern approach to patient care by providing real-time data and analysis to the care team while providing patients the tools they need to succeed.
