Psychological Assessment for Bariatric Surgery Candidates
The PsyBari is a psychological test for bariatric (weight loss) surgery candidates. Obesity is a growing health problem and bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment. There are approximately 200K to 300K bariatric procedures performed each year in the U.S. and every patient is required to receive psychological clearance. The number of procedures is growing every year and the PsyBari is the only psychological test on the market used specifically for bariatric surgery candidates. The PsyBari can also be used in any English speaking country and currently has users in the U.S., Australia, and South Africa. A Portuguese version is also being validated. Overall, the demand for the PsyBari is waiting to be tapped into. I am interested in raising money to improve our on-line presence and to market the test.
