For anyone considering bariatric surgery at South Nassau's Center for Weight and Life Management, the first step is to attend a free informational seminar. Seminars are held every month at 6 p.m. in the conference rooms at South Nassau Communities Hospital.
At these seminars, our surgeons and staff offer up-to-date information on what to expect throughout the weight loss surgery journey, and we encourage you to bring a friend or support person.
Seminars answer questions such as:
- What types of weight loss procedures does South Nassau offer?
- How long is the hospital stay?
- How much weight loss can be expected?
- What is the recovery like?
- What are the risks?
- What lifestyle changes are necessary after the surgery?
- What type of diet needs are to be followed after surgery?
