Participants Opportunity


The first hour provides attendees with the latest information about surgery options, as well as the opportunity to pose questions about candidacy for surgery, risks and potential complications, what to expect before and after surgery, and weight maintenance.

The second hour provides a forum for patients to share experiences, challenges and discuss life after surgery. Participants will have the opportunity to ask the doctor questions and find support among others considering bariatric surgery or who have successfully completed their surgery. Occasional guest speakers include dietitians, plastic surgeons and psychologists.

Sessions are free of charge.
No registration is required.
