Bariatric Surgery 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 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. We also offer a convenient online weight loss surgery seminar option for patients, available here.
