Weight Loss Surgery

Information Sessions

To provide the best possible experience and results, attending a free information session in person or watching our educational webinar is required of all patients.

Welcome to the Beth Israel Deaconess Weight Loss Surgery Network. We are pleased to offer both free, in-person information sessions as well as a webinar you can watch on a computer, tablet or cell phone. We have tried to make these as convenient as possible.

You can register for a free information session here or you can watch the free webinar here.

Attendance at an in-person information session or watching the full webinar is a mandatory requirement of all patients. This is to ensure that you know what to expect with weight loss surgery and to provide you with the best possible opportunity for long-term, successful weight loss.

The purpose of the in-person information session and webinar is for you to learn about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery, including how the procedures work to provide sustained weight loss. The programs are led by our surgeons and multidisciplinary team and cover the complete program process and the general requirements to be considered a surgical candidate. Family  and friends are welcome to attend the in person session, as long as they respect the confidentiality of other attendees.
