Why Attend a Weight Loss Surgery Seminar?

June 10, 2013

The decision to have bariatric surgery is not an easy one and requires a great deal of thought and information. One of the first and most comprehensive ways to gather that information is by attending a free weight loss seminar. Advanced Surgical Associates hold twice monthly seminars – one hosted by Dr. Muhammad Feteiha and one held by Drs. Joao and James Lopes. During these seminars, you will learn more about our office and the procedures available. Gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and gastric banding work in different ways with different benefits and considerations which should be fully understood.

Why is a seminar so important? A seminar is very useful to a patient because it will offer a great deal of information to help in the decision as to whether bariatric surgery is the right option.  It is also an opportunity to connect with our staff, which will be by your side for the months and years to come. Finally, seminars are a required first step in our weight loss program – it is important that you understand the pros and cons of weight loss surgery before your first consultation and pre-operative testing.

Seminars are also important because you will learn more about whether you qualify for weight loss surgery according to the guidelines set forth by the FDA and our practice. If your basic information shows that you are a candidate, we will also be able to help you verify your benefits and discuss payment options with you.

So as you see, the benefits of attending a weight loss surgery seminar are clear. We ask that you contact our office, either online through our website, or by calling us, to reserve your seat at one of our seminars.
