seminars and support groups

As part of our commitment to patient care and good clinical outcomes, we offer several educational opportunities. Patient seminars are designed to give prospective patients the opportunity to learn more about obesity surgery options such as the LAP-BAND® System and speak with both clinical professionals and patients.

Patient support groups are primarily geared for patients who have already had obesity surgery, but can be attended by prospective patients as well. They provide a critical forum for patients to share experiences, have questions answered, and gain encouragement from their peers.

Our patient seminars are held four times a year. Please call us at (845) 858-8780 to reserve your place at our next FREE Lap Band Seminar.
