The First Step Toward Weight Loss Success
For anyone considering weight loss, either medically or metabolic and with
bariatric surgery, the first step is to attend a
free patient information session. We offer the option of attending an in-person
session or viewing a video session. Both options offer complete, up-to-date
information on what to expect throughout the weight loss surgery journey,
answering common questions such as:
- What types of procedures are offered?
- How long is the hospital stay?
- How much weight loss can be expected?
- What is the recovery like?
- What are the risks?
- What lifestyle changes are necessary after the surgery?
- What type of diet needs to be followed after surgery?
