Anyone considering weight loss surgery should attend at least one educational seminar. Our program coordinator and bariatric surgeons provide information about our comprehensive program, including the surgical options we offer. The seminar is open to potential patients, family members and other support people and features time for questions, answers and discussion. A representative from St. Patrick Hospital’s Billing Department is available to speak briefly about payment options.
You'll leave understanding your weight loss surgery options and meet other patients who successfully lost weight after bariatric surgery.
Please wear comfortable shoes. Socks and shoes must be removed in order for your weight/BMI to be calculated.
Seminars are offered once a month, 5:30-7 p.m., in the Conference Center on the First Floor of the Broadway Building, 500 W. Broadway, in Missoula.
Call 406-329-5866 for more information or to register.

The appointments include nutritional assessment, medicine review, blood work at six and nine months post-op (not included in program fee), medical monitoring of your weight loss and ongoing education.
