Welcome Patients and Prospective Patients!

All of our seminars and support groups are open to the public.

Seminars tend to focus on educating and answering questions of those individuals who are interested in undergoing Weight Loss Surgery (i.e. Pre-Op patients). Seminars are a great way to meet other prospective patients and have your Weight Loss Surgery questions and concerns addressed by practicing bariatric professionals.

Support groups tend to focus on the questions and needs of patients who have already undergone weight loss surgery( i.e. Postop patients). Prospective patients often attend a support group to meet others you have undergone Weight Loss Surgery and learn about Laparoscopic Associates' ongoing patient care.

Both Prospective Patients as well as Post-Op Patients are welcome to attend both sessions as there is considerable overlap in information. We find most patients appreciate both sessions and even combine them into one group in some locations.

To learn more about Support Groups and Seminars, or to speak with a Weight Loss Specialist please contact our office.

We look forward to assisting you in your pursuit of health.
