Our Blog

Our practice blog regularly features tips, support, and information intended to educate and keep you connected with your care team before and after surgery.

Paying for Bariatric Surgery

One of the first questions many people have when exploring weight loss surgery is insurance coverage and how they will pay for surgery. Here we have broken down the various options including insurance, self-pay, and financing your bariatric surgery.

Bariatric Support Groups

A support system can be a big factor in success after weight loss surgery. Attending support groups can offer new friends, insight from new perspectives, and a way to dedicate some time to investing in your success.

Program Fees

Attending follow up appointments is vital for bariatric patients. Accountability is a huge part of success with weight loss surgery. Our program fee offers an extra layer of accountability.

Patient Resources

A few extra resources can be helpful when doing your research before bariatric surgery and beyond.

Our Top 5s

We have compiled a few quick Top Five lists to help you navigate the weight loss surgery process. Our lists include things you should ask yourself, your surgeon, and your insurance company.

For Providers

We work with many primary care providers and find that Physician Resources are helpful tools for those who do not specialize in bariatrics.
