Aurora BayCare bariatric surgeons lead group seminars in Green Bay on the second Tuesday of each month. An online, on-demand seminar is available at bariatricsgreenbay.com for those who are unable to attend in person, or who don’t wish to attend in person.
Seminars are designed for those considering a surgical option for losing a great deal of weight. They’re the first step in the Aurora BayCare weight loss surgery process. Seminars answer many questions. Topics include:
- The journey to surgery
- Surgical options
- What happens after surgery
- How bariatric surgery affects multiple chronic health conditions
Those attending the group seminar may have other questions about the weight loss surgery process, which takes several months. Those questions are encouraged and welcome.
Bariatric surgery facilitates weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can hold. The procedure usually is performed for obese adults who cannot lose weight through diet and exercise.
