If you are a new bariatric surgery patient (from late 2019 onwards) you will have received an invite to connect to the Siara Health platform. Siara Health is a software application that provides our patients with important information about their bariatric surgical procedure and subsequent aftercare. This content, created by Upper GI Surgery, provides customised and personalised information and triggers to help our patients during their recovery phase and beyond.
Starting in 2021 Upper GI Surgery has partnered with Fresh Start to provide support, education and coaching for bariatric surgery patients. As part of your surgical program with Upper GI Surgery, you receive a complementary 2-year program, delivered before and after your surgery/procedure to help you to create your new healthy lifestyle.
