Sudbury Bariatric Centre of Excellence
The Sudbury Bariatric Centre of Excellence is a part of the Ontario Bariatric Network (OBN). It is a team of experts that promote the collaboration and use of best practices around the care of people living with obesity and obesity related diseases. The program currently offers both the Medical Weight Loss and Surgical programs. Both the medical and surgical programs require a referral be completed by a physician/nurse practitioner (NP) through the OBN. In order to refer a patient to the OBN a physician/NP must first register to the OBN’s online referral system. Patients can only be referred to one of the programs.
