Step 1: Seminars

Attend Our Free Weight Loss Seminar

It is necessary to attend one of our free, monthly informational seminars before your first appointment with any of the Sebastian River Medical Center Surgical Weight Loss team. To reserve your spot in advance call 888-671-7762. Space is limited. Fruit and bottled water will be provided.

Our seminars provide people with an opportunity to learn about surgical weight loss. During the educational seminar, the bariatric surgeon reviews in detail the three surgeries available:  Laparoscopic Sleeve, Lap Gastric Bypass and Lap Band. He also discusses who would be candidates for the surgery, and he reviews the different insurance plans and self-pay options available to cover the surgery.

The seminar outlines the steps that have to be taken to proceed with surgery, and it offers you an opportunity to meet with the Surgical Weight Loss team so they can answer any questions you may have. Attending one of our educational seminars is the first step on your journey to becoming a healthier, happier you.
