Bariatric Surgery Information Session

The first step in our Bariatric Surgery Program is to attend an information session. This session is for patients who are interested in learning more about our bariatric surgery program (surgical weight loss program). This is followed by an evaluation visit with our surgical team. We offer both online webinars and in-person information sessions.

The online webinar, above, takes approximately thirty minutes to complete and will provide you with an overview of our program and the benefits of weight loss surgery. At the end of the webinar, please contact our intake coordinator at (773) 834-2161 to confirm your understanding of the material and to schedule an evaluation appointment. Completion of this webinar or attendance at an information session is required in order to schedule an evaluation appointment. In addition, please download this information session handout as a reference. The handout includes several resources to help you understand and succeed at our Bariatric Surgery Program.
