The first step on the path to bariatric surgery is to attend a Bariatric Surgery Informational Session, held twice a month.
It's important to learn all you can about various surgical procedures available in your quest to drastically reduce your weight.
At Marshfield Clinic, the first step is to attend a Bariatric Surgery Information Session. Information sessions are available at the Marshfield Medical Center and the Eau Claire Center.
You'll learn about the "qualifications" for bariatric surgery, the evaluation process, nutritional guidelines, required lifestyle changes and more.
We explain the procedures including the LAP-BAND and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
You'll be better able to evaluate the risks and benefits, and find out what to expect after surgery. Bariatric surgery is available at the Marshfield Medical Center and Eau Claire Center.
The information session is a great way to understand the process, the commitment, the surgery and the expectations after surgery.
And once you meet our bariatric team in person, you may discover you're more ready to go than you thought!
