Things have changed dramatically since I had RNY in 2010. Currently, what is the process that people follow to be considered for WLS that is covered by BC medical? When I saw my surgeon last, he mumbled something about a change in process and basically told me not to bother him again. That was in September 2015. I have some issues I need addressed including needing a scope and/or swallow to see if my surgery is intact.
Depending on where you live, you'll need your GP to submit a referral to either the surgeons in Richmond or Victoria. They are they only ones performing bariatric procedures in the province right now.
Richmond: Nam Nguyen, Sharadh Sampath & Ekua Yorke
Victoria: Brad Amson & Samaad Malik
