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.
In-Person Informational Sessions are free, but registration is required. Click below to register for one of our upcoming Information Seminars. Currently and during this COVID period our "In-person" seminars will be done LIVE but virtually. This way you can still ask our surgeons questions. You will be emailed the link to our live session prior to the meeting. You must download the Microsoft Teams App to join our live meeting.
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.
*NOTE: IF YOU HAD PREVIOUS BARIATRIC SURGERY AND ARE INTERESTED IN A REVISION, YOU MUST CALL ST. LUKE’S WEIGHT MANAGEMENT CENTER INSTEAD AT 484-426-2600.
