Weight loss surgery is not something to be taken lightly. Our Bariatric Program offers a personalized plan to ensure long-term success. Did you know that overweight individuals are more likely to suffer from medical conditions such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease? Weight loss surgery offers several health benefits and can drastically improve your well-being.

During the group session, you will meet our experienced weight loss surgeons where you will learn:

  • A brief history of bariatric surgery
  • About insurance coverage
  • Differences between the types of procedures offered: gastric bypass, gastric banding, gastric sleeve and endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty
  • Benefits and risks of each surgery
  • Diet and exercise changes to help you keep weight off after surgery

Plus, you'll have the opportunity for a private Q&A session with our experienced weight loss surgeons.
