Bariatric surgery informational seminars are offered throughout the region and on line. They are presented by bariatric surgeons Dr. Leonardo Claros, Dr. Maher El Chaar, Dr. T. Javier Birriel and Dr. Ikemefuna Akusoba and are intended for those people who are considering bariatric surgery and want to learn more about the procedures offered and expected results. Completing an informational seminar is the first step necessary in getting started in our program.* Please make sure you call your insurance to see if you have coverage for weight loss surgery.
During this COVID period our "In-person" seminars are on hold. We will update this web page once we are ready to start live seminars again. But don't let this stop you! We are ready for you.

- If you would like to prepare for surgery at our Stroudsburg or Phillipsburg Office, we are having a Live, VIRTUAL seminar on March 10th at 6:00 PM. Go to the Warren or the Monroe pull-downs below to register!
When we start live seminars again, you can bring an adult guest. We ask that you do not bring children. An in-person session may be best for you if you would like to ask questions. You can get your first appointment to the office at the seminar.
