Bariatric Surgery Information Sessions

Join a Washington University bariatric physician to learn more about surgical treatment options for weight loss. The weight loss surgery program is available at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and could be an option for severely obese patients who meet certain criteria.

During this 90 minute free information session, you will learn about treatment options including laparoscopic gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, duodenal switch, adjustable gastric banding and revisions to bariatric surgery. Time will be allotted for questions and insurance coverage will be discussed.

For your convenience, the information sessions are held on multiple dates at the BJC Institute for Learning and Development located south of Highway 64/40 and west of Hanley Road.
