The Bariatric Surgery Process: Steps Along the Journey to a New You
Free Weight Loss Seminars
If you have tried repeatedly to lose weight without success, learn from the experts at the Ascension St. Vincent Bariatric Center. We’ll present proven medical treatments and discuss the risks and benefits, as well as the commitment needed to achieve sustained weight loss. Bariatric surgery along with medically supervised weight loss has demonstrated the highest rate of sustainable weight loss compared to dieting or exercise alone.
Our staff invites you (and your spouse or companion) to learn about the Ascension St. Vincent bariatric care approach and the difference it can make through our seminars. Offered 5 days a week at our Bariatric Center, this information is for you to learn and ask questions. After the seminar, you will have the option to schedule a consult with one of our bariatric surgeons to discuss your personal goals and needs.
Attend an In-Person Seminar
When you attend an in-person seminar, you not only have the opportunity to meet our bariatric care team, but you can talk with others who face the same weight loss challenges. We will explain the entire surgical process and answer your general questions in a judgement-free environment. Bariatric care team staff may be available for one-on-one questions.
