Free Bariatric Surgery Informational Seminars

Jump Start Your Weight-Loss Journey

The decision to take the first step is an important one. We invite anyone considering weight-loss surgery to join the Temple Bariatric Program team for a free introductory seminar.

During this session, an experienced Temple bariatric surgeon will present an overview of weight-loss surgery and the lifestyle changes necessary for success. You’ll also receive information on various bariatric and metabolic surgery procedures, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgeries. This is your opportunity to ask questions about weight-loss surgery and our surgery program.

Following the session, you may schedule a priority appointment for a personal consultation with the surgeon. Get to know our bariatric surgeons and staff members >
