Bariatric surgery seminars are a way for patients to learn more about the options for weight loss procedures, before deciding they’re ready to make an appointment.
What Is A Bariatric Surgery Seminar?
Our seminars give you a quick but comprehensive education on weight loss surgery and obesity. We will teach you about the different surgery options including Lap Band, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric balloon. We will also talk about what laparoscopic surgery is, and how this type of surgery often makes recovery easier. You will hear about the risks of surgical procedures, and how to best manage those risks. Each part of the process will be covered, from what your pre-surgical steps are, to what happens after the weight loss operation.
The importance of making lifestyle changes, especially in terms of the way you eat, will be explained.
You’ll receive general dietary overviews, although our dietitians will work with you one on one throughout your own process, to ensure you are getting enough nutrients and eating in a way that will complement your operation. Additionally, we will cover our new non-surgical offering: the weight loss balloon.
