SEMINARS & SUPPORT GROUPS

Seminars
All patients interested in Bariatric Surgery are asked to attend one of our informational seminars before their initial office consultation.    One of our   Surgeons will discuss in detail the three bariatric procedures we perform to help you decide which procedure is best for you.  There will also be a time for questions after the presentation. 

 All of our Bariatric Seminars are held at the following location:

The conference room will be open approximately 30 minutes before the starting time of the seminar. Our seminars begin promptly and last approximately 1 hour.

Seating is limited, so we ask that only one guest accompany you. We do ask that your guest be at least 18 years old.

For Bariatric Seminar Dates and Reservations please call our office Monday – Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (251) 433-2609.

Support Groups:
Our bariatric surgeons believe that it is very important that you join a local support group even before you have surgery.  Bariatric surgery is a life-changing experience and it will be very good if you take part in a support group with other patients where you can share experiences, insights, and concerns. The goal is to adopt lifestyle changes, lose fat, gain muscle, and keep the weight off for good. The local Mobile Infirmary support group is listed below.

Bariatric Support Group:
Mobile Infirmary Medical Center Auditorium (ground floor)
