Bariatric Surgery Open House/Information Seminar
Because our Bariatric Surgery Program services veterans across 3 states, we have a prerecorded session below for patients to watch from home. This video lasts approximately 25 minutes, and is suggested prior to coming to your Initial Consult Appointment.
The “Buddy List” will link post-op patients together for support from home, and will give pre-op patients a personal contact if they need support from another veteran or have questions prior to their surgery. Please let the bariatric surgery team know if you would like to participate, or send us an email.
