Information Sessions

Our surgery patients are required to participate in a free information session before scheduling their initial consultation. These sessions are designed to introduce you to our program. You can attend an in-person session or participate online.

Bariatric Surgery Information Sessions
Online Session
You may participate in the online session at any time. Before taking the session, you will need to register and set up an account. Once you have completed the registration, you may begin watching the video session. The online session lasts approximately 30 minutes. After viewing the video, please complete the quiz and patient health history form. Once submitted, our team will be notified and will contact you to schedule an appointment.


In-Person Session
Our friendly, in-person sessions are held most Thursdays, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital. To register or for more information, please call (843) 402-CARE or register online.

Intragastric Balloon Information Session
Our Intragastric Balloon patients are required to complete an information session and registration form online. Once you have completed the registration, you may begin watching the 3-minute video session. After viewing the video, please complete the patient intake questionnaire. Once completed and submitted, our team will be notified and will contact you to schedule an appointment.
