Studies have shown losing weight prior to many orthopedic and intrabdominal surgeries can lead to a faster recovery and less post-operative complications. For example, when performing gallbladder surgery or fixing hiatal hernia’s the liver has to be lifted upward. OPTIFAST taken a few weeks prior to surgery has been shown to shrink the liver making the surgery safer.
