Bariatric Surgery Informational Seminars

Our Program

Bariatric surgery informational seminars are offered throughout the region and on line. They are presented by bariatric surgeons Dr. Leonardo Claros and Dr. Maher El Chaar 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.

Live Informational Sessions are free, but registration is required. Click below to register for one of our upcoming Information Seminars.

You can bring an adult guest. We ask that you do not bring children. A live 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.
