When you’ve decided it’s time to learn more about medical weight loss options such as Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve, LAP-BAND, Duodenal Switch surgeries and the Orbera gastric balloon procedure, we’re here to help. The Wellborn Clinic offers a comprehensive in-person bariatric surgery seminar designed to give you and your family the information you need to make an informed choice about weight loss surgery.
Here’s some common questions we’re asked about our in-house patient information sessions:
Why Does The Wellborn Offer In-Person Patient Seminars?
Here at The Wellborn Clinic, we understand that weight loss surgery is a life-changing event. We also believe patients should be fully informed about their options. As opposed to our online seminar, this is a great opportunity to meet Dr. Wellborn in person before scheduling a consultation.
Is There a Fee?
Anyone who is interested in surgical and non-surgical weight loss options can participate in an in-person bariatric surgery seminar here at The Wellborn Clinic. There’s no cost to attend.
Do I Have to be Pre-Approved by My Insurance Company To Attend?
No. You don’t need to ask your insurance company for permission to attend one of our patient education sessions.
If you decide to go ahead with a bariatric procedure, we can work with your insurance company regarding coverage.
Where Are the In-Person Bariatric Surgery Seminars Held?
We hold our patient education seminars on the Baptist Medical Center campus. When you register, you’ll be given a list of seminar times and locations to choose from.
Do I Need to Register In Advance?
Yes. We limit participation in each of our in-person bariatric seminars to keep the group size small. This gives everyone a chance to ask questions.
If you’ve registered in a seminar and your plans change, please call us to rebook your spot.
Can I Bring a Friend or Family Member?
Of course! We encourage prospective patients to bring along a supportive friend or adult family member to the in-person bariatric surgery seminar to ask questions and help you with your weight loss journey.
