Bariatric Surgery Seminar

The first step in our program is to attend an informational session. This is a visual presentation about our multidisciplinary program. They are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about our surgical treatments for obesity. Please feel free to bring your spouse, family member or support person so that they can learn too.

At this informative session, one of our independent medical staff physician speakers will give you detailed information about bariatric surgery. All sessions are held in the Sister Innocent Conference Center.

Information sessions are held by Michael Perez, MD on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of Each Month, from 6pm to 7 pm at the Sister of Innocent Conference Center in the Holy Cross Hospital main campus.

For further information or directions, please call 800-554-2839.

What happens at the sessions?

Information Sessions are the first step in getting started. Bariatric Surgery is a life changing process and doing your research is important. You want to choose a program that will provide you the tools to support your long-term weight loss.

Information Sessions are totally free and open to anyone interested in learning more about surgical treatment of obesity. Please feel free to bring your spouse, family members or any support person who will be involved in your care or supportive of you.

The evening is a visual presentation about health risks of obesity, the types of surgical procedures, the risks/complications/outcomes of surgery and an overview of the multidisciplinary program needed to support you.

The sessions are conducted by a physician speaker, who will not only answer general questions, but will stay after the session to answer your individual questions.

Although we will not be able to answer specific insurance questions, we will be able to describe how you get started, and when you leave the session, you will have all the information you need to start the process. At this point, the next step is up to you.

Sessions are located in the Sister Innocent Conference Center on the Holy Cross Hospital main campus, with signage leading participants to the meeting location.

Pre-register today for a free bariatric information session.
