This group is for both pre- and post-operative patients seen in the Froedtert & MCW Bariatric Surgery Program. This includes both adult and adolescent patients.
The word "bariatric" means "weight treatment." Our team uses advanced minimally invasive techniques to perform the Roux en Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, as well as other bariatric procedures. These procedures provide the best option for sustained weight loss and offer improvement of other health conditions related to obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea and joint pain.
Our format usually includes a featured topic or speaker related to bariatric surgery, with the opportunity to listen or speak as you feel comfortable about your successes and challenges with bariatric surgery. We highly encourage support persons of our patients (family, friends, adult children, etc.) to attend to get a better understanding of bariatric surgery.
