Because the decision to have weight loss surgery is such an important one, you should plan to attend one of our free events. Bring your questions. You will learn answers to such questions as whether or not weight loss surgery is for you … how to find patient events and ongoing support groups … how bariatric surgery works and what are the surgical options … and, finally, is weight loss surgery safe and what are the risks?
The Center for Weight Loss Surgery at Danbury Hospital offers regular patient information seminars for patients having surgery as well as for those seeking information about our program. We have free seminars at Danbury Hospital and in the surrounding communities. Review our calendar to find an event that works for you.
Seminars are interactive and informative. They are designed to help you address questions or concerns you may have regarding bariatric surgery and the procedures offered. Registration begins one half-hour prior to the seminar.
