Learn what it takes to achieve a healthier you

Many bariatric surgeons’ offices offer seminars for patients to learn more about the bariatric surgery option. These seminars cover a wide range of topics to help prepare you, as well as your friends and family, for what to expect from bariatric and metabolic surgery. You’ll learn about your surgery options, each of the procedure’s risks and benefits, plus the lifestyle changes you’ll need to make to maintain your new, healthier lifestyle. Many surgeons even require you to attend a seminar before your first consultation.

Find the right fit

You’ll get to meet the surgeon who will be performing your surgery at these seminars. Many people attend more than one seminar before finding a surgeon they feel comfortable with. Talk to your surgeon and the bariatric and metabolic team you’ll be working with so you have a solid understanding about how they operate.

Connect with other people who will be having bariatric and metabolic surgery, or who have already undergone it. Building healthy relationships with like-minded people will help keep you motivated and on track.
