North Colorado Medical Center Bariatric Center - Andrea's Story When I first became a patient of the Bariatric Surgery Center at the North Colorado Medical Center, I needed to do several tests, including a sleep apnea test, extensive blood work, heart stress test, and then also, then needing-to-lose weight prior to the procedure being done. I really appreciated that because it made me feel that they were taking care to make sure the procedure was safe for me. Surgery and being under anesthesia is a serious matter and by doing those tests and finding out what my health was and what my needs were, I didn’t feel like they were doing it so I couldn’t do the test. I felt like they are doing it so that I was safe and so that the best methods and techniques were used for me.
