To be considered for surgery you must meet the eligibility criteria. If you meet the criteria and have attended an in person information session or watched the online webinar, we can then assist you in scheduling a series of appointments to meet members of our team, including a nurse, a medical doctor, a dietitian, a social worker, and one of our surgeons. This process is to ensure that weight loss surgery is the best solution for your health.
- Attending a free information session and/or view the online Webinar.
- Calling your insurance company for requirements and coverage of weight loss surgery
- Once you have completed these steps, or if you have any questions, please call us at 617-313-1440
In Preparation for Your First Visit
We encourage you to invite a family member or trusted friend to your first appointment. In fact, we welcome a loved one at most appointments to help you as you gather information about your health and treatment. Remember to bring a list of any questions you have for the Weight Loss Surgery Team, and a notebook so you can jot down information.
Please call our main line (617) 313-1440, and one of our program administrative assistants will help you.
