Welcome to the Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve, and Lap Band section of this website.
If you are interested in any of these procedure please have your primary care physician, ob/gyn, or a physician call and refer you for one of our informational seminars. You need to have a physician that you see on a regular basis call to refer you over to our office. Once we receive a referral from your physician for the procedure you are interested in having, we will verify your insurance. You will then be scheduled for the appropriate seminar and we will send you an information packet. Seminars are scheduled for Tuesday afternoons at 12:15 and Wednesday's at 8:15 in the morning or 12:15 in the afternoon. The packet will include directions to our office, directions to the seminar, and step-by-step instructions on how we proceed with your workup for bariatric surgery. You have to have a certain BMI to qualify for the procedures. Here is a BMI calculator to determine if you qualify for the procedure.
