Prior to scheduling an Initial Surgical Consultation, patients can attend an Informational Session at no charge. These sessions are scheduled talks presented monthly to individuals considering weight loss surgery. The Informational Session is a great way to learn detailed information about our surgical weight loss program and can help you decide if weight loss surgery is the right treatment choice for you. A bariatric surgeon from our program gives a detailed description of the weight loss surgery procedures performed within our program, risks of surgery, and expected outcomes following surgery. The nurse clinician and registered dietitian discuss psychosocial, nutritional, and behavioral changes associated with weight loss surgery. This session is offered at no charge and is offered to anyone contemplating this treatment option. Relatives, friends, and support providers are also welcome to attend.
You can register to attend an Informational Session by contacting our office at 630-933-6745 or our class registration line
