Your decision to have weight loss surgery should be an informed one. We'll help you understand procedures, answer your questions and give you all the resources you need for your weight loss journey.

Free Information Sessions

We offer free information sessions throughout the year where you can learn about obesity and its related health risks, receive detailed information about weight loss surgery options, meet our surgeons and members of the bariatric team and talk with an insurance specialist. Former patients are often on hand to describe their experiences. These sessions are mandatory for anyone considering weight loss surgery. Family members and friends are welcome to attend.

View alternative dates or locations and register online for an upcoming information session or call (888) 421-1080. You may also walk in and register at the seminar.

The Importance of Support

Support groups give weight loss surgery patients the opportunity to gather information, share personal weight loss experiences and learn from others' experiences. A support group can help with the emotional and physical issues surrounding weight loss surgery and provide the continuing support and encouragement needed to reach your goals.

Our free monthly support groups provide opportunities before and after surgery to learn and ask questions of our dietitian, psychologist and bariatric nurse, as well as patients who share their personal stories about the challenges and successes of weight loss surgery. Support groups are open to anyone who has had or is planning to have weight loss surgery.

For more information or to speak with the bariatric nurse, call (603) 433-5174.
