Getting Started with Weight Loss Surgery
We encourage people to do some research on the varying types of weight loss surgery. Please attend one of our free weekly seminars held in Winston-Salem or Greensboro in order to hear an overview of the procedures and meet one of our surgeons. Please call (336) 716-6099, Option 1, to schedule a seminar and find a location near to you. Also consider attending one of our monthly Weight Loss Surgery Support Group meetings, to ask questions of post-surgical patients. Finally you will be able to discuss this decision at your individual consultation with the surgeon.
