This seminar will be an in-depth presentation from members of our Center for Obesity Surgery and Treatment team about gastric weight loss surgery options. The session will cover offered surgeries, including sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and gastric banding. We will also review benefits and risks of surgery, necessary dietary changes pre and post-surgery, as well as insurance requirements.  Knowing if weight loss surgery is a covered benefit with your insurance is an important step. Prior to your seminar date, a member of our team will contact participants for insurance information. This allows us to prepare personalized packets outlining your pre-requirements for surgery. For more information or other pre-seminar questions, call 352-331-5255 to speak to our team members directly. www.northfloridaweightloss.com

Bringing a guest is welcomed.

We are an accredited Comprehensive Center through MBSAQIP (Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program)
