Losing weight can help you find yourself. For individuals struggling with
obesity, the possibility of bariatric surgery to achieve comprehensive
weight loss can be both exciting and intimidating. Only a well qualified
surgeon can help determine the right course of action on a case-by-case basis.
Coupled with a highly-trained surgical team and backed by the state-of-the-art
medical BHS is able to provide every patient with comprehensive bariatric
services-from compassionate advice and counseling to several types of
surgery options and thorough follow-up care.
Your first step is to contact BHS with your interest. We will work with
your insurance carrier to verify your insurance benefits for bariatric
surgery. Next, you should attend a free informational seminar, where you
will learn about surgical weight loss options and meet our staff and other
patients. We can then schedule your initial consultation with the surgeon
to determine if weight loss surgery is the right tool for you.
These free monthly seminars are open to the public and provide you with
the opportunity to learn about surgical weight loss options from one of
the BHS Bariatrics physicians and ask any questions you may have.
To register for one of the seminars, call 1-855-778-7796 or email
