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

BJC HealthCare has canceled in person classes and events to reduce risks to attendees and staff and to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). For your convenience, the information sessions are currently being held via Zoom. 

Who Should Attend to Learn More

If you answer YES to all the following you are a candidate for bariatric surgery:

  • You are at least 100 pounds overweight or 75 pounds overweight with a specific health related diagnosis
  • If I am under the age of 18, I have a legal guardian who can support me in learning about losing weight through surgery.

If you need a revision from a previous weight-loss surgery, please complete the Revision to Previous Bariatric Surgery form prior to attending the information session.

If you are under 18 you must have a legal guardian present during the information session.
