Supporting you along the pathway to better health

The truME mobile app enables your care team to support you between office visits by providing activities and nutritional support and reinforcing the lifestyle changes needed for long-term success.

With you every step of the way

The journey to health doesn’t begin and end on the day of surgery. From the days leading up to the procedure, and the years after it, truMED is there as a trusted companion.


Prior to surgery, truME provides helpful information about what to expect; offers customized plans and daily reminders; assesses your physical, emotional, and mental well-being; tracks your pre-surgery progress; and connects you with a network of your peers.

Day of Surgery

On the day of surgery, truME offers encouraging messages, personalized reminders, and individualized pre-op instructions.


In the days, months, and years following your surgery, truME provides dietary support, activities, personalized menus, recipes, a support community, mental health surveys, and encouragement, as well as providing connection to your entire medical team.
